A few weeks ago, with a worried frown, Georgia announced, "Might be there is no Santa."
"Really? What makes you think that?"
"Some kids say there is no Santa Claus. That he is make believe."
"Well, that's a shame for them. You know that Santa only comes to kids who believe in him, don't you? He won't come to kids who don't believe in him. So what do you think, Georgia, do you think he's real?"Her little face brightened - "Yes!"
A few hours later Georgia asked me if I'd help her make Christmas presents for everyone in our family. "I want to make all my presents with my own two hands. Not just go out and buy them - that is just too easy!"
So for the rest of the day her little hands were busy, busy, busy. She even made presents for the dogs, (and her aunt's cat) a paper bone for her Sammy and a new house for my Lewey. The old wine cask is probably ill advised but I don't think the dog will mind.
Georgia has embraced the spirit of Christmas. Perhaps this will be her last with the true innocence of a child, where anything is possible.
I wish you all a wonderful Christmas full of love and joy.
