A little street girl fell ill one Christmas and was taken to the hospital.While there, she heard the story of Jesus' coming into the world to save all people.

     One day the nurse came around at the usual hour, and "Little Broomstick" (that was the little girl's street name) held her by the hand and whispered, "I am having real good times here, ever such good times. S'pose I'll have to go 'way from here just as soon as I get well; but I'll take the good time along ~ some of it, anyhow. Did you know about
Jesus being born?"
     "Yes," replied the nurse, "I know. But you must not talk any more."
    "You did? I thought you looked as if you didn't, and I was going to tell you."
     "Why, how did I look?" asked the nurse, forgetting her orders in her curiosity.
     "Oh, just like most o' folks ~ kind 'o glum. I shouldn't think you'd ever
look glum if you knowed about Jesus being born."
