Christmas Eve Awakening

My son and his baby daughter visited a lifelong friend on Christmas Eve. When we telephoned her sitter said that she had experienced a lot of challenges that day and was sleeping excessively. When our friend heard my son's voice, she woke up immediately, and turned towards him and grabbed his baby's hand. It was our true Christmas Miracle !
