Lucy went ahead and finished The Christmas Box (that book I mentioned in this post back HERE) without me, gosh darn it! So I don’t know what happens in the end (she keeps telling me I better get busy with my reading:), but there is one time we were reading together that I keep thinking about as Christmas draws near. There was a question posed to the main character from a wise older woman: “What was the first gift of Christmas?”
Lucy and I stopped and talked about what we thought that man would conclude. We happened to be reading right after I had watched my favorite Christmas video a little earlier that morning so I pulled it up on the computer and pulled Claire into our discussion and the three of us watched together.
I was sobbing when it was through. How easy is it to forget that first gift in the midst of all the hustle and bustle?
So I figured I’d better share it here on the blog. Here you go. It is the BEST.
