The delight on this girl’s face seeing her family sums up the spirit of Christmas

Take a few minutes from your festive preparations to soak up the joy of the season.

One of the many blessings of Christmas is seeing our children perform in various concerts and Nativity plays.

This one video sums up the utter delight our children feel when they see mom and dad show up to see them in action.

The short clip from Life News shows the expressive face — and tears — of a little girl when she spots family in the audience. It’s so sweet you’ll have to watch it over and over; it will remind you just how much our kids really do need us to show up.
