While putting up the Christmas decorations, Lucy, Kevin, Ruthie, Sam and David panic when Eric is running late from work. However Annie keeps the faith and tries to assure everyone that he is fine. Eric, meanwhile, finds himself in "heaven" following a scare in the church parking lot where he is greeted by Grandma Jenny and meets merchants who offer special gifts for all seven children. Annie gets a pin, or blue cameo brooch, that her father gave to her mother when their daughter was born.The gift of More Time is given to Matt, in the form of a watch. Mary gets an Eraser, the ability to forget that she vandalized the high school gym. Lucy receives the gift of courage. Simon is given his purpose in life. Ruthie gets dignity, beauty, and loyalty. The twins get cooperation, understanding, and mutual respect. His family decides to extend their annual Charity Day to 3 days: 1 because it feels good, 1 as Eric's favorite present, and 1 for the infant Jesus. The best might be his own gift: everybody has a bunch of guardian angels, and the experienced one in charge of his paperwork is processing an application from colleague Stanley to grant his suggested wish for more time alive on earth.
