Have you ever chose a gift tag from a Christmas tree for a needy child? What did that child request as a gift?
When widowed Valerie and her son Ethan visit a coffee shop, they choose a gift tag for a child in need. Ethan is excited, and he spots a man removing the gifts from the tree. “Is that man the Grinch?” Ethan asks his mommy…
Jake is not the Grinch, he’s a man who works with disadvantaged folks, collecting gift donations from under the tree to distribute to needy children.
Valerie is attracted to handsome Jake, but, although her husband is deceased, shouldn’t she remain faithful to him forever, never to marry?
Jake is smitten with Valerie, but, she’s wearing a wedding ring – so, she’s married, isn’t she?
Valerie is shocked when she finally reads the tag she’s removed from the tree. This child has requested a miracle, she doesn’t know how she can give this child her requested gift. Can Jake help her to fulfill the wish for this needy child?
This was a sweet, heartwarming short Christmas story. It was a good, light read.
