A Christmas Gift
Today we celebrated the baby Jesus in Haiti.
How blessed we are to be able to share this day with the children of Caroline’s House. They are so precious, created by the very one who sent his son Jesus to save them.
We share gifts and this special day together. The gifts are small. All had to fit in my suitcase for the trip but the time together has been very special.
Many of us went to the beach today including our six year old Milove ( I call her “Baby Love”). She has been with us for several months but has not yet been to the beach. In fact I would say it is likely she has never been to the beach at all.
I say this because she was very excited to go... but then as we got closer to the sea she became very upset. She was far from the water and would not move any closer.
Eventually, I was able to coax her into sitting in a beach chair a little closer to the water and she sat there for quite a while. Soon she was playing with the other children in the sand, still far from the water.
Then a little closer - before we headed home she had waded in waist deep. That was enough for today.
Our Baby Love was so pleased with herself and clearly had a great deal of fun with the other children. This little one has had very few experiences like this in her young life.
But today Baby Love’s world got a little bigger and that’s not a bad Christmas gift.
