A Christmas Wish and a Prayer for a Little Girl!

When you are blessed with so much, you are able to ‘Pay it Forward’ in so many ways. Unfortunately, Christmas has turned into such a materialistic holiday that we loss sight of what it truly is all about. The letter below is about a very special little girl that ‘Pays it Forward’ and doesn’t even realize she is doing so. A brave little girl that already has blessed so many other children with her warm heart.

Donating a gift…
I put out a request for all to send me a letter stating why their little girl should receive a special gift for Christmas. There were so many, but this one below really captured our hearts.

I want to thank you all for your letters of little angels that need an extra smile for Christmas. This was a very hard decision and I am glad I had a team to pick the winner. DRUM ROLL……The Hannah Montana Guitar and gear go to a very sweet little girl in Tenn. G-d Bless all the children, my prayers and devoted dedication will always be with them. I promise to always do the best I can to make this world a better and safer place.

Her story…

A Christmas Princess

A Christmas Princess

I know my 6 yr old granddaughter would just be overwhelmed with joy to receive a Hannah Montana guitar. She has been a fan since age 4.
She is my oldest granddaughter and has had to deal with so much in her young life.

Back in May 2008, her dad committed suicide in their home. Her little mind could not grasp why Dad didn’t want to spend his life with her and her sisters. Even though she has had so much grief to deal with and not knowing what grief is, when she went to group counseling and heard the stories of other children losing their dads, she would go to console them without any thought for herself. She told her Mom — Mommy, they need lots of hugs to get thru this.

It’s been hard to just watch her sadness but she now is coming to grips with not having Dad there and is taking care of her 2 sisters, *******, who is turning 5 and ******* who is 3. The nightmares have lessened and we are seeing more smiles on this face but the biggest change that has emerged out of all this is a little girl who will care for others in their pain and put hers aside.

She is now working on a Christmas show where she is writing all the songs so that she can make other people understand that Christmas is about giving and caring for others.
Even though they only have Social Security income right now and not enough for extras her and her sisters have given up their Christmas gifts to give to a child on a Angel Tree.

She is quite the little lady.

****************************************************************
I think we can all agree that this little angel deserves a special Christmas :)

Happy Holiday’s everyone, may G-d bless each of you and watch over all the little angels that he has created within us.

    I can hardly wait to see her little face when she receives this wonderful gift! When I was doing our budget for December and I realized that we only had about $50.00 to spend on Christmas gifts I sat down with the girls to have a little heart to heart. I explained to them how very blessed we were to have each other and to be near our family through the holidays and that there were other children who didn’t even have that much. We decided to bless another child with a gift even though that meant the girls would not be receiving a gift from me this Christmas. To my surprise they took it to the next level! They went in their room and carefully selected gifts for each of their cousins and friends out of their own toys. I am so proud of the spirit of giving my babies have adopted and I really believe that it will give them a better appreciation of the gifts that they are given.

    Thank you so much for this wonderful blessing <3

    from Grammie:

    The girls know about that Santa guy (as they call him) and they play along for other kids….

    They have been taught the story of Baby Jesus and celebrating His Birthday on Christmas Day and how He gives gifts to others because the biggest gift is joy in your heart.

    So based on that I have written this for them when they open their gifts.

    Baby Jesus will celebrate His Birthday on Christmas Day.
    It makes Him so happy when He catches children doing things that help others when they are sad and need help.
    YOU HAVE BEEN CAUGHT….. GOOD JOB.
    You have touched the heart of others when they were sad in “The Caring Place” and you gave to the “Angel” on the Christmas tree….
    You touch the heart of Jesus when you help and listen to your Momma too and you love on your sisters and family.
    Baby Jesus is very proud of you and the love you share.
    He has some special friends who heard about your love and they want to share something special with you.
    They heard about your giving heart and how you want to share the true meaning of Christmas…..
    They thought these gifts would bring you joy and put big smiles in your hearts.
    Merry Christmas
    From your Friends too at Tears for Fears

    Dear Lisa,

    Please, you don’t owe me any thanks, if anything I owe you. You are an inspiration to all momma’s and your girls are an inspiration to all children and adults. They are very special. If there is anything else I can do, please just ask.

    Your package will arrive on Dec. 16th! Have a Merry Christmas and may all the years ahead be filled with warm, happiness, peace and love.

    Hi Lyn-Dee, Our boxes arrived today safe and sound. As much as I am itching to see her open them I would like to wait until Christmas morning to give the girls this wonderful gift. They are not expecting to see very many presents under the tree so imagine their surprise when they see what you have blessed them with! I will be sure we video tape the whole thing for you and should be able to email it to you after they open everything :o )
    Thank you again! Many Blessings to you this holiday season

    This is such a powerful and touching message. That little girl is serving with such a huge heart. We could all stand to be a little more like her, every day, in every way, as we remember that “they need lots of hugs to get through this” applies to others around us that we meet every day. What a huge heart in such a tiny girl. Thanks for sharing Lyn-Dee!
