This Monkey Man comment is from late November, but since I started this blog in January it never made it into a post. Lucky for us, I wrote it down and now here it is.
Monkey Man was admiring the Christmas tree which was one of his favorite things to do once it magically appeared during naptime in our house. He looked at a small square ornament that was embroidered with a Nativity Scene. It’s very simple – it has 3 small figures inside a basic pentagon-shaped house with a star on top.
Monkey Man: "What is this, Mommy?"
Mommy: "It's the Nativity. That's Baby Jesus, Mary, and Joseph."
MM: "Ummm, How ‘bout it’s a gas station?”
I knew Jesus was a carpenter and I guess a blue-collar guy (in a "I can work miracles" blue-collar way), but I had no idea he had his beginnings pumping gas at the neighborhood Hess station.
