Darn You, "The Christmas Shoes"

L was home sick yesterday...strep throat, our favorite! 
While waiting in the car, the song "Christmas Shoes" came on.  Have you heard it?  If not, check it out.
Well, then she wanted to know what it is about.  You know the story...mom is dying and her young son takes what little money he has to buy his mom some "Christmas Shoes" in case she goes to "see Jesus tonight."  He, of course doesn't have enough money and a man helps him pay for them.

Sweet, very sweet, but oh so sad.

L cried right there on the spot and I got choked up just explaining it to her!  Oh but that wasn't the end of it.  At dinner, L got teary-eyed and said she was just thinking of the song about the Christmas shoes.  Then PT asked what it is about...we explain it...he tears up without even hearing the song.  A few hours later, H goes up to check on the kids in bed and PT in crying.  He said he was thinking about that song again.
I just adore their sweet hearts.

H, needless to say, was not happy with my "stupid song" after that.

Darn you, "The Christmas Shoes!"  Darn you!

Sorry, I still can't get over how much I hate that song. Bah-humbug.
