When our son was born, we were excited. My husband and I had spent many hours together during those labour days just laughing at silly videos we had watched over again. We were very excited for this little miracle. We named him Highwayman because we always thought that being a Highwayman was better than being a Grandmother.
Our first Christmas came during a very short winter, and our daughter's father went into exile in the mountains. When we got home from the hospital, I made breakfast in my kitchen – something that I am so proud of. The children came running in, but my little girl refused to eat the food. I told her it was not healthy to eat raw food, and she just looked at me with those big eyes and said that Santa Claus would come in.
That was just the beginning, however. Two weeks later, the children were no longer coming to me for lunch. They came to me when Santa Claus was coming to our house. Santa stopped by and ate lunch with us that day. This was an amazing experience for all of us. We were so touched by his Kindness and the fact that he wanted to share his Love with our children.
Santa visited our little village each year, but it is only in recent years that our children have truly felt what Santa Claus can do. We can see their faces light up as they watch Santa lead their little ones down the aisle. We watch in wonder how their eyes light up as they see the face of their Grandpa or Mom for the first time. We have become so close to them that some days we can see their expressions as they read the letter from Santa. It makes our hearts melt!
I cannot imagine life without my son, but I have learned that he makes my parents' lives so much sweeter. He brings joy and happiness to our home every day. I love each moment I spend with him, and I know he does the same for our children. I want to take the time this Christmas to think of him and how he means so much to both of us. He is a great example of a loving and kind father. He has taught our children's self worth and how to give without expecting anything in return.
Life is not easy for any parent, but when you have a child who is so beautiful and lucky, things can really become a little easier. A lot of parents have said that they wished they had a daughter like Santa. They wish they could show off their daughters to everyone they know and be just like Santa. I wish I could say the same things about my son. . . . . . . We are blessed to have such a sweet little boy, and I hope he will follow in his Parents footsteps.
