Jayden’s Christmas Flower Miracle
“Christmas is only a few days away,” said Jayden, looking out her kitchen window. “I love Christmas!”
Jayden grabbed her coat and went outside. She saw that fresh snow had fallen. It looked beautiful outside. She walked around her yard and then she saw that her Christmas flower had bloomed and it was the prettiest thing Jayden had ever seen.
“You look even prettier in the fresh snow,” said Jayden, as she bent down to take a good look at it.
Jayden had no idea who had planted the Christmas flower. She noticed it in her garden last Christmas. She did, however, suspect that Santa Claus, himself, was the one that planted it.
Jayden was just about to go into the house when she noticed her neighbour, Mrs. Smith, was waving at her. Mrs. Smith looked like she had been crying.
“Mrs. Smith,” said Jayden, walking over to Mrs. Smith’s house.” What is wrong?”
“It’s my husband,” said Mrs. Smith. “He is ill. He is in the hospital and right before Christmas, too. I need a Christmas miracle.”
“I am very sorry to hear that,” said Jayden. “I do hope he will be okay.”
“Thank you dear,” said Mrs. Smith.
Jayden walked back to her house and she caught a glimpse of her Christmas flower. She thought back to what Mrs. Smith had just said to her about a Christmas miracle.
“I wonder,” said Jayden to herself. “I wonder if my Christmas flower would help Mrs. Smith with her Christmas miracle.”
Jayden went into her garden shed. She got a ceramic flower pot, some soil she had left-over and a little bit of fertilizer. She went over to her Christmas flower and snipped off a sprig of it and planted it in the flower pot. She took it over to Mrs. Smith’s house.
“What is this?” asked Mrs. Smith, confused.
“This is hopefully your Christmas miracle,” said Jayden.
“Is this from your Christmas flower?” asked Mrs. Smith.
“It is,” said Jayden.
“This might just be the miracle I need,” said Mrs. Smith, wiping a tear from her eyes. “Thank you.”
Christmas Eve afternoon, Jayden heard a knock on her door. It was Mrs. Smith.
“My husband just got home from the hospital,” said Mrs. Smith.
“I am so happy to hear that,” said Jayden, smiling.
“I am pretty sure your Christmas flower was the miracle we needed,” said Mrs. Smith. “Merry Christmas!”
“Merry Christmas to you and Mr. Smith,” said Jayden, happily.
