I was also thinking about gifts ...the ones that really mean something and stay with us for years SUCH AS WHEN.....
- A friend or family member supports us through a difficult time. My friend Marcy seems to know exactly how to do this time after time and my friend Caroline from Ebay has helped me over and over again with understanding my concerns with Casey's health.
- When someone shares with us knowledge that we have the rest of our lives. My mother taught me to embroider and cook and how to show love to my family.
Now girls....tell me about specific situations or spiritual gifts that you have received. I would love that.
OOOh I must run...I need to finish the house up and prepare for my daughter and husband and grandsons on Friday. Can't wait.
I love blogging and talking with you and hearing all your sweet comments. OOOh do keep them coming in.
Also girls be certain to check out my new Ebay listings...I am trying to keep everything I list under $20.00 with absolutely no reserve and I will list many for just five days.
A pretty little poem just for you girls....
If one could just go back again and be a child at Christmastime,
to feel anew that breathless thrill, that tiptoe sense of awe sublime,
to sing the carols one knows best and light the candles, view the tree,
to hear the reindeer on the roof and almost feel that one could see beneath
the mistletoe and holy Santa's face so round and jolly,
To go with mother to the town and buy a doll for Nancy,
to try and stretch some dollars for a present fine and fancy,
to have the smell of evergreen send happy shivers down the spine,
to hang red ribbons on a wreath of hemlock, spruce, and pine,
to capture all that INNER GLOW WE USED TO FEEL SO LONG AGO,
To creep down the to the fireplace so early on that quiet morn
and lift that lumpy stocking down....
the one that has your name pinned on,
to scurry with it back upstairs and empty it upon the bed....
nuts and candy, cake and pears and giant apples, polished red,
OH! to be that child again at HAPPY CHRISTMASTIME!
Now never fear...I will keep this all JUST BETWEEN US GIRLS.
