Hello and Merry Christmas lovely friends! Can you believe Christmas is only 2 days away? Where has this year gone? I have been getting several cards in the mail over the last couple of days! Thank you so much! I love them all!
I wanted to share a little Christmas surprise that came a little early this year...
Her name is Holly. She is an 8 week old, Maltese. She is only 1.5 pounds. She is so tiny and so precious. I see this as the beginning of a wonderful relationship! ha! Thank you all for your advice!
There are a couple of other Christmas surprises that I want to share with you all. The past few days have been a little difficult and despite the cheer in the air and in my heart, I have been crying at the drop of a hat; we are talking about some serious meltdowns.
I was in the middle of another meltdown earlier tonight, when my Dad came home with mail. He had two boxes, one of which was from Anthropologie and it was addressed to me. I asked Mom if she had ordered anything because I hadn't and I didn't want to ruin any surprises. She said that she didn't. I was so confused. I opened the box and I began sobbing. Inside was the beautiful sweater that I had said I wanted in this post. It was from the wondeful staff at Polyvore! (Merry Christmas, Polyvore!) Not only did they send the beautiful sweater but a mug and a gift card that has one my sets on the it! I was so overwhelmed. I just didn't know what to with myself.
And while I am trying to process this beautiful gift of kindness and support from such wonderful people, my Dad then tells me that a young man he used to work with years ago, called him this morning. He told my Dad that we were on his mind and he remembers that I am sick and he wanted to invite our family to his church so that they could pray for me.
Despite my heavy failures, my Father never fails me nor forgets me. I am so loved.
Merry Christmas! I hope you all feel love, warmth and HOPE this Christmas!
