Last night we were in the car listening to the local Christmas music station when the song, “A Soldier’s Silent Night” came on. I knew the kids hadn’t heard it before. So, even though it always makes me cry, I turned it up a bit and let it play through.
At the end, Makenna was teary and commented that it must be the saddest Christmas song ever. Dylan asked if Santa left the soldier any gifts.
Jack stayed quiet for a minute then said, “I think that Santa needs to give that poor soldier a dog. Then, he wouldn’t have to be so lonely any more, and he would always have someone that loved him. That’s why I love my dog.”
Sweetest kid ever!!
