Thank you so much for sharing your personal and inspirational holiday stories in this blog post. I am sitting here crying over some of them and laughing at others, but I have read each one and still have tears in my eyes. I am so touched to hear about songs, handmade cookies, crafts with moms and grandmas, walls filled with art, advent calendars, special eggs, Santa stories, and chimbleys.
To read about all the amazing people raising special needs family members and how you enjoy and embrace the little things that make your children's day, even with hardship, really made me think. To know that we are all lucky to have something little or large to celebrate and just to be glad that we are alive and loved. I am feeling fairly humbled by all the luck and love I share with my daughter and how easy we have most of the time. Thanks for the inspiration and the reminder---today is a beautiful day and I am blessed to be here and hug my daughter.
I selected one winner for the 3 stamp sets---this is the tradition I want to start with Little Bit this year. Thanks Jules! A scavenger hunt sounds fun! Please email me with your address and I will send your stamps out ASAP.
And my thoughts go out to your family, Veckans.
