letter-to-santa-photo

Meg B. from Portage, Michigan sent in the letter her 10-year-old son wrote to Santa. He writes, "Dear Santa, I hope you understand you can skip me because the kids on the coast need more than me. Say hi to the elfs and give the reindeer some carrots for me. Love, Tommy. PS, I mean it I don't want anything at all." What an amazing young man with a beautiful spirit. Thank you for sending this in, Meg. You're doing something right.

Tommy,

You are such a big hearted young man of 10! You give everyone hope in showing your selflessness for other children less fortunate than you. May God Bless You, and I thank you for showing me and others that there are young people like you growing up with wonderful values. Thanks to your parents for raising you in a manner that exudes loving, caring, and compassion for others in need.
I am sure that Santa may have something for you, just because you are so kind in giving up what you would like to have to others.

That's the most precious dear Santa letter I've ever seen. For a child to put so many people above himself is amazing. We should all learn from this boys selflessness.

Aaawww, this is soooo sweet! What a wonderful little boy this is; thinking of other children instead of himself for Christmas. God bless him! ;)

This literally caused me to weep (crying is not a bad thing, especially in this instance) As adults, we forget just what wonderful teachers our sweet youth can be. I'm blessed to be taught by my children often and count among my blessings today, the gift of Tommy and his authentic selflessness. BEAUTIFUL!!! Eyes of Heaven are upon him and I doubt he'll be skipped when it comes to receiving and abundance of gifts!!!
