Shantel got a little digital camera and this picture was taken with it.
Robby got a unique gift from Santa. To lead up to this gift, I must go back and explain. Someone was challenged at church to do random acts of kindness for the family for a week. This person chose to make beds. The beds would be made and then someone would announce that their bed had been made again and Wonder who it was. One of the kids thought it might be Santa. So then a note was found on Robby's bed. It asked for 20$ instead of a made bed. I had scanned the notes, but they are in the TIF format and well I can't change it right now. A return note was given:
Sorry Charlie! No dice! You aren't making your bed on a regular basis, so why do you think I would give you $20? This is an act of kindness, a service to you of a nice neat made bed, from someone who loves you. Say “thank you” and be happy someone loves you!
The Bed Maker
Robby then wrote another note and it said:
Ok! Can you tell me who the bed maker is? And for Christmas I want a PSP and a box. Not regrarl box a box full of love!
Signed by you know who!
After you tell you who it is!
So now to Robby's giftA box of love! It came with this note:
It has been made known to me that you think I have been the one making the beds in your house, I am not the one. The beds have been made by someone living in your home who loves you. This person is showing their love for you by doing something kind for you and your family and not expecting to get something for it.
I have also been told that you have a few requests for gifts: a PSP and a box of love. Well, PSPs are very expensive and they require a responsible person to own. I have watched and I know you are having trouble in a few areas, like telling the truth and listening to your parents. Robby, it is really important to listen to your parents and to tell the truth. I don't think that you are yet responsible enough for such an expensive gift. Please work hard on these things. I also know that your brother, Cody, was about 11 when he got a Game Boy Advance for his birthday, maybe when you're 11 you will get something like that.
As for a box of love, Robby, do you know that your parents chose you? They wanted you to stay in the family, they wanted you to be a part of the family for all time. They all love you very much. Look in this box. What do you see? Faces that love you. Would you think of something that you can do for them and not get anything in return? Can you show your love for your family by listening to your parents? By making goo choices? By being nice to your brothers and sisters? Please think before you act, please make good choices and show your love with kindness. Love is what Christmas is all about! God loved us so He sent His Son to earth for us. Love is what Christmas is all about, not presents and not Santa. So, look in this box of love and add more pictures of others you love and who love you.
