The 3rd Day of the 25 Days of Christmas

For some reason I don't cry very much like women are suppose too. I've been known to hold the tears back because I haven't wanted people to see me cry. The other day I heard my mom tell someone that my dad wipes tears from his eyes when we watch Extreme Makeover Home Edition. She says he has a tender heart. So sure enough Sunday night while we were watching it, I caught him wiping tears away.

After we watched that we watched The Christmas Shoes. I had seen the play some years ago and last year was the first year I had seen the movie all the way through. My dad had to go to bed early because he had to work and my mom fell asleep while I was watching it. So close to the end when the little boy was buying the shoes, I started to cry. I thought, oh well no one is watching. Boy was I wrong, I turned and saw my mom with her eyes opened. I said, "this seat should be called the crying seat (it was the seat my dad was setting in when he was watching TV)." I told my mom that the movie really got me right here and I patted my heart. So here is the whole song of The Christmas Shoes.

Remember Jesus is the Reason for the Season!

I bawl my eyes out every time I hear that song. It makes me think of my mom.

I just saw the movie with Rob Lowe for the first time last year and really loved it.
