“The Christmas Blessing” is a wonderful movie to add to your holiday collection, especially if you already have “The Christmas Shoes.” This sequel adds to the original story and offers a look at what has happened to Neal after the Christmas when he lost his mom. It also shows how precious life is, no matter what is thrown your way. Sometimes it is that loss in our lives that makes us see things in a different way and gives us strength to deal with disappointments.
The characters and the story will make you both laugh and cry as it highlights the blessings and miracles that seem to be part of the Christmas season. But fair warning: If you wear you heart on your sleeve, make sure you have the tissues ready. Gather the family around the TV with blankets, popcorn and tissues to enjoy this fantastic Christmas movie.
The film is Dove approved for ages 12 and over.
