Smile Another Christmas and its Wonders !

The Spirit of Christmas is something that must be fed, Perhaps the following will add to Yours this Year........................................

The Year is 2003, The Date is December 24th, 30 minutes before a shop in a small town is closing for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
A boy about 10 years old enters a store and walks up to the Manager of the store and says, "Mister would you buy my bike ?" (This is a Boy's most Treasured item of all until he gets a car) The Manager asks the little boy, Why he would want to sell his bike ? The Little boy looked up to the Manager and said, " I want to buy my Mother a Present for Christmas ." The Manager tells the little boy to keep his bike and walks him through the store to choose some items that the boy wants to give his mother, The Managers wife wraps the presents with the boys help. The boy leaves after saying, "Thank You" and Rides Cheerfully home with a big grin from ear to ear. You see I know this heart filled story to be true because ............. Barbara was the one who Wrapped the Presents and This Little Boy Touched our Hearts with his willingness to sacrifice the one thing that meant the most to him in order to make his mother Happy.
We were given the Most Wonderful gift that Year.
This true story I would like to dedicate to my Brothers Memory, He died the day before, and had the Biggest Heart I ever saw next to My Mothers of course.
May the Christmas Spirit Live in Your Hearts Today and Forever and Thank You all for allowing me to share this with you. Love to You All ! James

James, you and Barbara were already special to us, now, you are even more so! This tells anyone that hasn't already been gifted with your warm hearts and kind words just how special you both are!! I have tears in my eyes as I'm sure anyone reading this does too.
I wish for Christmas, for your family to have the most wonderful day and prosperous New Year! I hope that all your dreams come true!!
