Everyone who likes kids knows how important it is to make a child’s Christmas wish come true. Most of us have been there, up at 2am putting a bike together, painting a dollhouse, wondering if the hamsters will make it through the night.
Our granddaughter Clara is as lucky as she is creative. Her Christmas wish was for a stuffy in the form of a mythical creature she calls a “heart-maid.” This is six-year-old parlance for a mermaid shaped like a heart and stuffed with soft fluff. She drew a picture for Santa so he would know what she had in mind.
