The Spirit of Giving
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, we had family visiting from out of state for the holiday. Since they won't be able to be back for Christmas, they thoughtfully brought presents for this children at this visit. The President received a cool remote control car, and a Christmas DVD that I so look forward to watching in the van on our way home.
I heard my sweet boy using his good manners, just as I've always taught him. He said to my aunt, "Thank you for the DVD, and I appreciate it....but I don't like Veggie Tales." Kids are so darn literal...I have always told him that if he gets a gift that he doesn't like, or already has, to say thank you and appreciate the fact that he was given a gift. He's just so honest...I guess I forgot to one step further and explain that you don't have to tell everything!!!
