True Holiday Spirit

TB’s class is collecting money for a homeless shelter, so he has been asking Chris and me for donations. This morning as he was leaving for school, he told me how much money he was taking. It was a generous sum, so I asked if Dad had given him any money. TB responded in the negative and explained that it was all his money.

I asked him if he really wanted to give that much money, and he said yes and explained the following to me.

“You and Dad have money to take care of us. Plus I’m safe with God; He gives me everything I need. So, I don’t need the money, but they do.”

Then with a hug and kiss he bounded off for school.
