Excellent Christmas Short Story by Pearl S. Buck

This is a very short, very special short story by Nobel Prize winner Pearl S. Buck. It is an internal narrative of a man and his revelation many years earlier on a cold, cold, early Christmas morning.


 We are empowered by love that validates our existence, creates the knowledge we are unique and valuable. We are of import and assigned an exclusive mission in life because of love. We are not expendable; we are loved. 


Pearl S. Buck

Please enjoy this story with a secondary-aged kids, maybe your own middle-schooler or teen. It's good for them to realize they are loved, too, even if they can't milk the cows to reciprocate.


Here is a bio of Pearl S. Buck and the complete text of the story. It transcends  demographics.
