A gift from my daughter

I regret that we did not have a family gathering this year as we had done in the past. My husband has been recuperating from two surgeries and with all the stress we have gone through in the past couple of months dealing with his pain and recuperation, I felt it was best to celebrate quietly at home. I was fortunate to have my youngest daughter pull out all of my Christmas decorations and put up my tree this year. If it wasn't for her my home would not have any Christmas spirit whatsoever. Thank you Jenn for being there for us.

I was so pleased to receive a special gift from my daughter in Michigan. She sent me a pair of handmade primitive mother and daughter Annie dolls that she made especially for me. She designed the dolls herself and included a little pillow stitched with the words "A mother holds her children's hands for a while.....Their hearts forever." I'm so proud of her accomplishments.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
