A very special doll story
Several weeks ago My daughter Jana gave me a Christmas wish list for her two year old son little Gary.
One thing she wanted for him was a Cabbage Patch Kid...specifically a
boy with brown hair and eyes. The weekend before Thanksgiving I was
shopping with daughterinlaw Shelly. I found such a little boy but
didn't like his outfit and didn't get him.
A few days ago my husband Gary and I ventured into Kohl's for a short time. I
checked for the right doll and could only find one with brown hair
and gray-blue eyes. I decided to get him because I don't have the
physical or emotional energy to shop for very long.
I didn't even look at the little boy's name. When I placed him on the
counter for checkout I noticed something I could hardly believe. His
name was Aron...one letter off from the name of my dear Aaron who
died. Not only that..his birthday was March 6, and my Aaron was born
on March 7th!
I have not told Jana because I want her to discover for herself. I
have a feeling that she won't mind that his eyes are blue....like our
This incident was a gift from God and from Aaron...to make me smile
at a time when tears come easily.
