Blessed Christmas from the browns!
As we gave out presents to the kids at a minute past midnight, we got a surprise gift in return: this lovely painting from our youngest one.
Behind the painting, there were messages from Isaac and Joy for Mommy and me. And even a message from Faith. (Technically Joy helped her autistic Cheh Cheh to write that message but it was still sweet.)
Joy said her test of whether the paintings looked like her subjects was to ask her big sister questions like:
“Where is Papa?” Faith points to me.
“Where is Mommy?” Points to Mommy.
I tell you, the best presents are kids who love you and know you love them. Even if they drive you crazy sometimes, during the rest of the year.
May the Love and Peace that surpasses all understanding, guard your hearts and minds this Christmas.
