A Thought

In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa

Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

What A Wonderful Day

We are having such a peaceful, wonderful day!  AND.... it is SNOWING!  WE always wish for snow on Christmas, and today, it happened! It is just beautiful!
A few of our guests had to cancel, because in Texas, many don't feel comfortable driving in snow. However, our Russian friends came on over right in the middle of blowing snow! LOL

We started our morning with a snuggle so Uncle Bob could sleep a little longer, with the emphasis on "little". :)
Sarah made coffee and Alli and Erika went out to care for animals.  And then, we were all up.
I made our gluten free crepes with Lingonberries.  They were WONDERFUL!

The girls opened gifts and it was just so sweet to see their creativity. 
I received 2 coupon books this year to use for extra foot rubs, spa days and chores. :)
I LOVE getting those coupon books. :)
Sarah was so thoughtful with a gift she gave her daddy...
Anna put together a rock collection for me. She knows that a long time ago I had one and it was lost.

We had some wonderful and  silly times too. :)

 I think Alli likes Erika and Anna's gift as much as they do! LOL
 Sarah was very thankful!
We had a very special treasure chest this a.m.....
One of our customers was getting rid of what was left  from a sale of  "Charming Charlies" costume jewelry.  He and his wife gave it to the girls. We figured this would be a huge hit, so we put the gift in this treasure box.  It was a mass of tangled jewelry, but some really great stuff. They were so excited and spent hours untangling jewelry!

They are planning to give some to friends, wear some and especially use it in props for movies. :)

  It is still snowing! :)
