In my mind, most people are naturally kind, empathetic, and compassionate. Most of us want to do something to help those who are in need, or those who are suffering.
Though there areplenty of scientific and medical benefits of being compassionate, many people don’t need to be prompted to help others.
In a heartwarming story below, an 11-year-old girl shows the greatest depths of compassion for the most important person in her life her mom.
Mostother girls her age would write lengthy wish lists for dolls and other toys come Christmas, but Bobbie-Mae wrote something quite powerful and poignant in her note to Santa Claus this year.
The present she wanted wasn’t something to have for herself but it was something to pass along exclusively to her mother…
Scroll further to find out what Bobbie-Mae wished for Christmas this year, and let us know what you think in the comments below!
Debby Chalk, 31, from Southampton, England, has lived with Crohns disease since 2006.
A pretty rare condition, Crohns is a type of inflammatory bowel disease that affects the gastrointestinal tract and can cause severe stomach pain, fatigue, and weight loss.
Debbys 11-year-old daughter, Bobbie-Mae, is well aware of her mothers health struggles. This prompted her to pen a touching note to Santa this year, wishing for her mothers good health and well-being.
Crohns and Colitis UK, a charity organization that is battling forms of IBD, posted Bobbie-Maes note to Facebook. It has since been seen by thousands of people. It reads:
My daughter gave me her letter to post to Santa last night, and I thought Id share it with you guys. I was a little bit surprised, as I always feel like I put on a brave face and hide my illness well, but clearly nothing gets past her, Debby said to Metro UK.
Debby was extremely emotional when she saw her daughters letter, and she could only express how proud she was of Bobbie-Mae for being such a kind-hearted, compassionate kid.
