And I want her to look beautiful if mama meets Jesus tonight / He counted pennies for what seemed like years / Then the cashier said, "son, there's not enough. But then we hear the real reason he wants his mom to have these shoes: “I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight.” Oh, snap!. Yes, we get the joke that mommy's actually kissing daddy in a Santa costume so she can look beautiful in case "momma meets Jesus tonight.
Out of the corner of his eye he could see a small figure weaving in and out among the customers. He turned his head to look closer and saw the figure was a boy who looked about six years old. He was small and held a jar filled with change. As he watched the boy make his way to the shoe section of the store he could see the boy was actually closer to eight and it was only his height that made him look younger.
The boy looked pensively at the rows of shoes for a long time, and the man walked away, determined to finish his shopping and get back home. Thirty minutes later with the last few presents in hand he made his way to the single open register and found himself behind the boy he saw earlier. Up close the boy was rather a mess, his clothes were dirty and they looked like he had slept in them, all in all he made a rather pitiful picture.
There were quite a few people in line in front of them and the line seemed to move very slowly. The man shifted rather impatiently like the other customers who were anxious to get home, but the boy in front of him was practically vibrating with his impatience. Soon it was the boy's turn to make his purchase, and to the man's great amusement he placed a pair of red heels with bows on the counter and announced he wanted to buy these shoes for his mother.

The cashier scanned them and informed the boy it would be seventeen dollars and thirty-two cents. The boy opened up his jar and began to put the coins on the counter. The expression on the cashier's face became frustrated as she realized how many pennies there were and the boy began to count out the coins.
He could hear customers behind him grumble in annoyance and the boy glanced at the clock.
It took quite a while for the boy to finish counting out the coins, and when he was done the cashier shook her head. He did not have enough money. The boy's face fell and he searched his pockets for more coins, but he couldn't find any.
He looked at the shoes desperately before his frantic gaze turned to the man.
He met the boy's eyes and the boy let his plea flow out. Tell me sir, what am I going to do, somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes," The little boy's face grew rather earnest as he continued, "Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please, it's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size.
Before he could say this the boy's voice cut through his thoughts, responding as if he had read the man's mind. You see, she's been sick for quite a while and I know these shoes would make her smile and I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight. A smile flashed on the boy's face and he said, "Mama's gonna look so great. As he watched the boy leave the man felt like he remembered the meaning of Christmas for the first time in a long time.

Kimberly Williams gives a stellar performance, and Max Morrow and Amber Marshall are perfect for the roles of the cute kids, much needed for the story.
Although Rob Lowe was disappointing for the first time, in my opinion, I think this movie is a great one for families to see together. I think that there are many tough issues addressed in "The Christmas Shoes," giving parents an easy opening to talk to their kids about some of the harder things in life. This movie is realistic.
Normally, it's easy to laugh at so-called "sad" movies, because in the end, everyone's happy, all ends well, and they do live happily ever after. But this film has a real-life feel to it. It's sweet, bitterly sad, heartwarming, and family-oriented.
Definitely see this the next time it's on TV!
