Her little face lit up…


     I placed an item from the MIL’s house into its new home last evening.  On Sunday, we’d found a gently used Christmas decoration that I’d never use and don’t have room to store.  It’s a Christmas winter-wonderland skating rink complete with Ferris wheel, carrousel, skaters, lights, and more.  I immediately thought of the little angel across the street. 

     Her little face lit up so bright when I brought it in their door I knew I’d made the right choice.  I’m delighted to give them a new family tradition.  I’m betting after I left they tried it out because the little one was so excited about it.  There’s no way her mother could’ve stuck it away for a year without a test run.

     Mom was already eyeing up their coffee table as a place to set it up for next year’s holiday.  I hope they get many years of enjoyment out of it.

  1. What a wonderful story to begin a new day.

    May all your holidays be happy little one!

    I really enjoyed watching her smile.

  2. That was a very sweet and thoughtful thing you did.

    If you were to meet this wonderful, polite, sunshine filled girl you’d know why I did it. That smile was worth it all.

  3. What a precious thing to do!

    I had to clean out my parents’ place, so I understand your agony. It is a long, seemingly never-ending drudgery. But it will end, eventually. I sure wish I could come & help — to me it sounds like a candy store! LOL!

    Some of the stuff is candy store, yes. The rest is Goodwill-one man’s junk is another man’s treasure…
