What’s your favorite Christmas memory?
My friends that I grew up with from home would give out presents to families in need every Christmas Eve. We went to visit this one little boy who was suffering from a brain tumor. We went to visit him in the hospital and showered him with gifts and love and he was so excited. With everything he was going through, he still was just a kid at heart looking forward to Christmas. I walked out balling my eyes out because of not how much joy I brought him, but how much joy he had brought me.
