As I lifted the lid on the box of ornaments a little voice said, “Ooooh! Pweddy Mommy!” His bright blue eyes lit up as I handed him a shiny star ornament and told him to be gentle. His little hands held it softly like it might break at any minute. He watched me as I began to place ornaments on the tree absorbing each move that I made. Getting the hang of it, he knelt down and on one of the lowest branches and carefully hung his first ornament. He then lifted his face to me and his smile washed over me.
There is nothing like a child’s joy at Christmas. These little ones remind us what this season is about. They remind us about faith and the pure beauty of happiness. It is this eternal light of a child that I pray is never extinguished. Whenever you lose sight of the meaning of the season – look to a child.
And a store that is keeping our precious little ones stylish is The Children’s Place! Luke’s entire outfit is from there! When I went in looking for a holiday outfit I had the hardest time selecting because there were so many cute clothes to choose from! The clothes were super stylish and at great prices which is really important this time of year. I wanted to buy up all the girl outfits even though I don’t have a girl! Their entire site is 30% off right now!! be sure to scroll down to enter to win a $25 The Children’s Place gift card.
