Dear Santa…

My kids are always doing or saying things (that I so wish I would journal daily ) which make my heart smile, laugh, or even tear up, but there’s nothing more priceless than when these little heart melters are jotted down with their own precious hands. My dear daughter, Kyla, is always asking for a sister and after an argument with 2 of her brothers, she decided to take action and write her wish to Mr. Clause, who seems to always pull through with the things she asks for on her Christmas list.

After she wrote this and I gently broke the news that she probably won’t be getting a sister for Christmas, she sweetly asked if we could bring home an 8 year old girl from Haiti to be her sister (Haiti is the place she is asking to go to for her next birthday). I don’t know if she realizes that bringing another little girl into our house would steal her limelight and her princess status a little bit, but I do know I totally love her passion for those less fortunate. I think with the every child initiative at our church, the Lord is changing her heart and opening her eyes to the orphans in need throughout our world, and for that I am incredibly grateful.
