I think you might be Santa?

26 Dec

Tonight as we gathered around the table I heard Hayleigh talking. She was the first one to the table. She tends to be our most eager and easy eater. As we all were shuffling around washing hands and gathering food she is talking.

” Papa, I think you might be Santa. You know why? They say he delivers the best presents of all, and you delivered mama the other night.”

I am not sure if Hayleigh knows the effect of her innocent, yet endearing words, but I needed those encouraging words today.
