While a lot of kids are getting (understandably) pumped about what Santa is going to get them for Christmas, one little patient who’s sick at the Children’s Healthcare Center of Atlanta has a request that’s absolutely melting our hearts.
The anonymous child wrote a brief letter to Santa that the hospital posted on their Facebook page. “The spirit of the season, by way of a pencil and a patient wise beyond her years,” the hospital captioned the photo of the letter, which read:
The letter has since been shared over 350 times and liked 1,600 times, with various people commenting about the patient’s “loving heart,” and it’s easy to see why.
Even though this patient is sick in the hospital, this child didn’t focus on his or herself, but instead focused on every child in the world having a happy and love-filled Christmas. Sure, it might be a big request for Santa, but in the most amazing way.
If that’s not the true spirit of Christmas, what is?
