  • I still smile when I think back to years ago when my 4-year old daughter, Susan, was helping me unpack the Christmas decorations. While taking the straw-filled crib from the manger scene out of the box, Susan explained to her 2-year old sister, Chris, “Baby Jesus was born in a nest.” – Lucille Kaestner, Mt. Laurel, N.J.
  • My little four-year old grandson accompanied me to the ophthalmologist to get a pair of reading glasses. While paying my bill, he pleaded with me, “Grandma, please get me some reading glasses. I need to know how to read!” – Wanda Bower, Tampa, FL
  • My nine-year old granddaughter lays her head on my shoulder, puts her arm around my neck, precious minutes pass, she softly says, “I love you granddaddy.” – John D. Taylor III, Tampa, FL
