Little Boy, Big Heart

Every year, the real start of the Christmas season for me is packing up our Operation Christmas Child boxes.
Before we had kids it was fun but now that the kids are able to help out, it’s a blast!
We pick out appropriate items and talk about how a little boy or girl will use it.
We talk about helping others and sharing our resources.
We talk about being grateful for all that we have.
(As usual, I learn more from them than they from me.)


Our elementary school had a fundraiser selling sodas.
Due today, I sent in our form and money for two cases.
When Carter got home, I found the form and money still in his folder.
At dinner I told Marshall about it and said I’d just send it tomorrow and see if they would take it.
My little boy with a big heart suggested that we just use the money for Operation Christmas Child.



His letter:
This is my picture. ↑
I hope you have a great day.
I love you.
Do you like what you have now?


Her letter:

Dere Christmas child,
I am going to sind you a box.
I hope you have a great day.
You ar going to hav a fun tim.


Oh, how I love my children.
