There it was: The most disgusting, yet loving, caring, heartwarming gift ever!

You see, our seven year old knew that Mommy and Daddy wanted to make a special drink that required mint. However, we didn’t have any. So, he went outside by himself, on one of the coldest days of the year, and dug in the snow until he found some mint. Some old, frozen, decomposing mint.

Next, he placed it in a coffee mug and added some water with sugar. He adds sugar to everything.

Later, I came into the kitchen and discovered what I thought was just his latest concoction. That’s when I discovered one of the greatest gifts I ever received.

“Of all the gifts I received for Christmas, THIS was my favorite gift!” I told him, as my heart melted. I even took a sip and sent him off with a hug.

Ten minutes later, he was back to normal, getting in trouble for not going to bed on time and picking on his big brother.

That’s what Christmas is all about!
