Gideon's Gift by: Karen Kingsbury
Eight-year-old Gideon has leukemia; and 51-year-old Earl has no home. When Earl's wife and child died in an accident on Christmas, Earl gave up on life. Gideon meets Earl when she serves him rolls at the mission. Gideon wants to make Earl smile, but Earl only growls when she tells him "Christmas miracles happen to those who believe." Gideon's gift of red mittens puts Earl back on track. Earl, in turn, gives Gideon a gift that makes a miracle.
