Mrs. Green was delighted with the idea of hosting everyone after the Christmas Eve Service. When Mr. Green told her about the idea she got busy passing the word around church. They were instructed to pick up their favorite Chinese food and head on over to the Green’s house where they would all share the feast.
It seemed to everyone that Mrs. Green had totally forgotten about the kitten. They were all so pleased with themselves and excited to spend the evening with the Greens.
Mrs. Green left church first in order to open the house and make a few preparations. Mr. Green and a large group of friends arrived first. Mrs. Green welcomed them all at the front door with a hearty Merry Christmas!
Mr. Green was the first to notice a soft sound coming from the front room. Mrs. Green was grinning from ear to ear as they all left the kitchen to find out just what everyone was looking at. There on a soft blanket in the corner of the room was the kitten!
Mrs. Green was late to church because she went to pick the kitten up herself. Mr. Green laughed out loud and kissed his wife.
She smiled at all of her guests and said, “I just had to have that kitten.”
