Wishing You a Merry Christmas, This Picture Says It All



Babyboy is leaving tonight to drive 13 hours from DC to Orlando (Add a few grey hairs) to join us for Christmas.  Before I sign off for the holiday I wanted to share with you this email I received from a friend. 


So the story goes....This Nativity scene was erected in a church yard and during the evening some parishioners came across this scene


An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep.  No one had the heart to send him away, so he was there all night, curled up in the comfort of baby Jesus' lap


To make it even sweeter, the dog breed is a shepherd


Wishing You All A Very Merry Christmas!


Carol

This is so precious. My mom sent this to me in an email, but the attachment didn't come through so I never saw the picture. Thank you Carol.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas together.

I've never seen that picture before so I'm glad you showed it. It is a beautiful sight to see and so poignant. I love all animals, especially dogs so this would not be hard for me to believe this scene could happen. Love it. I know how you feel about your son traveling. I always breathe a sigh of relief when family members finally get to their destination safe and sound.

Hope you and your family have a wonderful time together and a Merry Christmas Day!!!--------Shannon

Hello Carol,

This picture touched my heart. It reminds us of the true meaning of Christmas, its not about "stuff" or shopping, its about Love and Peace. I cannot help to think that this dog felt very loved. What a touching photo to share. Thank you so much! Sandy
