Talynn, you’re a very good writer and your story moved me. My daughter doesn’t teach her children the Santa legend either, but they do keep Christ as the center of Christmas. I was almost in tears for the little girl and boy who didn’t receive Christmas presents, but you have grown rather than being diminished by such a devastating punishment. To find it in your heart to forgive your mother and look back with gratitude is quite remarkable. I hope you have a blessed Christmas this year with many good family times.
