A Special Gift

The votes are in, we are watching Elf tonight!  I can’t help but smile during that movie.  What is one of your favorite Christmas movies?

Thinking of Elf, made me think of our favorite holly, jolly elves, Jinx and Jangle.  We will have to check in with them tomorrow, since it will be Christmas Eve!  Do you think they will finally get Santa’s approval to have their own team of reindeer? 

If you have missed stories about Jinx and Jangle, here is a link to the most recent ones.  The latest one had 2 parts to it.  The Adventure Begins  and  The Adventure Continues…Part 2.  Enjoy and tune in tomorrow for their next adventure!

This week I had a visit from a very dear friend of mine and she surprised me with a very special gift.  It was a homemade ornament made with a heart full of love! 

Back in April she lost her dear husband to cancer.  We have been friends with them for over 20 years and it was hard to see Pat leave this earth way too soon.  So hard to see the hearts of my friend and of her dear children be so broken.

I was trying to think of something special to give them this Christmas and here Sherry came up with such a special idea of her own.  An idea of a way to share Pat with us this Christmas. 

She took one of Pat’s shirts and made a star out of it, stitched Love Pat on it with a heart in the middle.  Sprayed it with his favorite cologne.   One more great example of how its not about the size or cost of the gift that makes it special! Its all about love! The love behind that gift is so precious to me.   I will treasure this gift.  It is hanging right now in the middle of our Christmas Tree.


I hope that you can feel love this Christmas!  May it swell up in your heart and overflow out of you into the hearts of others that you meet.  Love is what Christmas is all about.

  1. I love that idea and I hope Sherry and her family are finding peace in this holiday season! We have watched Elf already a few times this year, but my favorite is It’s a Wonderful Life, which we watch on Christmas Eve every year.
