Lovely, sweet story.

This sort of story is told in many different ways every Christmas--can you think of a way to give yours a unique twist, to make it stand out from the crowd?

I like the childrens' names, especially Tibby.
your story brought tears to my eyes, what a wonderful write, you have a wonderful gift!
From the opening paragraph you wouldn't know John had passed. I thought he'd lost his way chopping wood so the revelation is even more touching. I thought that even though it was familiar, it was well told.
This is a sweet story and will bless any who read it. It reminds readers of the joy of giving. Good job!
