COMPASSION

LITTLE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE

Submitted by Ellie Kidder

I stood outside grocery store with my two heavy bags of food when the parents of a 2 year old offered me a ride. I don't normally take anything from strangers. This time, I did. At the end of the ride, I gave them a candy cane with two pipe cleaners as horns, pair of eyes and red tiny pom pom for the nose. They were squealing with delight because they failed to find their child's request for Christmas. They looked all over for two days and they were rather discouraged, feeling like they failed their child. Well, they got it directly from me. Talking about a little miracle. :-)
