Our thoughts...A gift from God
Placeholder Image

 In our Christmas Eve edition, we will be reprinting the most famous Christmas editorial of all time -- "Yes, Virginia There is a Santa Claus."

 While preparing for our holiday editions, we ran across an interesting story.

 This week, an Arkansas mother gave birth to her 18th child; the little girl was named Jordyn-Grace Makiya Duggar.

 Ma and Pa Duggar’s are in their early 40’s and their 17 other children are ages 1 through 18.

 The Duggar’s also have a reality show on the TLC network.

 Jim Bob Duggar, the father of the children, said that little Jordyn-Grace Makiya was "the ultimate Christmas gift from God."

 Jim Bob we have to agree with you on that one.

 We can remember struggling to come up with names for our children and for the Duggars to not only come up with a name after 17 other children, but also to still be able come up with not just one, but another name starting with the letter "j" for this latest bundle of joy -- it truly is a Christmas gift from God. Perhaps they could help other parents with their naming dilemmas.
