I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday! I had one of the best ever and the only thing that could have made it better was for my sister in NC to be here with us with her family of 9 and my nephew who is in the Navy training program. We are so blessed and my heart is full of JOY!
My Christmas wishes this year are to help my sister get a new van and her bills paid off from Devin's cancer treatments. I wish I could figure out how to do so. The wheels are spinning and I have some ideas but would welcome any that my good friends would have that would lighten the load. My sister is the sweetest woman you will ever meet. Married a wonderful man she had known for 8 weeks back in '88 and 22 years later they have 7 children from heaven. She would never ask for help and or a penny and never complains but the road has been difficult and they have so much more they have to figure out with Devin and his eyes where he had the scarcoma. I would just like to see her happy and smiling and really feel the JOY in her heart. She does so much for everyone even when her own heart was in pain trying to understand all of this and why God would allow this to happen. She is in Matthews, NC which is a suburb of Charlotte.
So tonight I start my adventure trying to help my sister and her family. My brother in law is working 2 jobs right now and is not at home to help during the day. Again he would never complain and is a man of God with the most giving heart who would give you the shirt off his back as would my sister.
I am grateful that a non-profit helps them during the holidays but if it were up to my sister she would not take the help. I have to say that for the kids I am happy she does. They have never asked for much as kids but I know they really love getting a few things as do all kids.
Lastly I wasn't able to get out today to do my RAKS but am backing cookies here with Demi to give away tomorrow with little notes. I am hoping to drop off a few ATC cards with bible verses to some unexpecting friends/strangers. I can't wait!!!
Have a wonderful and fun week and remember to let those you LOVE know it.....enjoy every waking moment!!
