Mom Shares Heartfelt Letter to Non-Verbal Autistic Son: ‘You won’t remember Christmas, but I hope you remember how special we made you feel’

“You don’t understand the burly man in a red suit, the great food, or the little baby sitting in a manger. On Christmas Day, I’ll take pictures in hopes you will one day look at them and remember. That you’ll remember I tried. I pray one day you’ll be able to communicate what you’re feeling. I’ll wait an eternity if it takes that long.”

‘A gentleman stopped me as I headed for the doors. ‘Go get it.’ He filled my hands with a giant palmful of cash and pointed to a huge, fancy tree.’: Woman recalls powerful act of kindness during Christmas season

“I stood there, speechless. Then he said something that shook me to my soul: ‘If my daughter was still here with us, I’d do the same for her.’ I sat in my car and cried tears of gratitude. Never would he know what this actually meant to me.”

‘My son recently asked, ‘What did you get for Christmas as a kid?’ So I told him. ‘I honestly don’t remember.’: Mom shares sweet Christmas reminder, ‘Only the memories last a lifetime’

“Decorating the tree with my favorite Hallmark ornaments. Christmas music ringing through the house. Sledding down the neighbors’ driveway. Sipping hot cocoa from mugs adorned with snowmen. Driving around town in search of the best lights. Those moments? They last a lifetime.”
