Mom and I were at the hospital today. She had some tests done, and on our way out we saw these two gorgeous horses:
As it turned out, there was a Christmas party for young transplant patients and their families. These horses had the honor of drawing a carriage with the most important guest of all–Santa Claus! The horses were almost as popular as old St. Nick himself.
The real guests of honor, of course, were the kids. The party was closed off to the rest of the hospital, but every so often you saw children with their families go in and out with their presents, a sparkle in their eyes. Santa even comes to the hospital.
