Things don't always work out as you plan . . .
Noah woke up Christmas morning not feeling well. We assumed it was all of the excitement, but realized (after two stops while on the road that day) that it was something worse. So, finally, after a few days of battling an upset stomach and fever, he is feeling much better.
So, needless to say, I have been neglectful of the kit hints!
Once I get back into town, I will post a few fun pictures, but for now here's a second hint:
What do SEI, American Crafts, Scenic Route, Heidi Swapp, Li'l Davis, Making Memories, Heidi Grace and 7gypsies have in common?? They will all be represented in Feb's papercrafting kit (plus a few more surprises).
Hope everyone is having a great Christmas! I have a wonderful story on the subject that I wanted to share before I go . . .
My sister-in-law's sister is an elementary school teacher in St. Mary's County, MD where I grew up. One of her students, who has experienced many trials already in his young life (and continues to) gave her three gifts for Christmas. She was surprised by the gesture because she knew that he did not have any money. The first gift was one of his blankets. The second was a 2-liter bottle top that was a "winner" for a free 2-liter (he saved it for her) and the third was a candy cane that she had given him the week before.
All I have done for the past several days is wonder how I could possibly teach my own children to be appreciative for what they have and to be generous and self-less in their giving. It is a hard task when all you want to do is give them the world and keep them free from hardship.
