'twas the night...

...before Christmas! Our family made it here safely yesterday. I am grateful that Kirk's parents and his brother all made the scary trek down from Washington to be with us for Christmas. The roads are a dangerous place to be! I had an accident on Monday and my heart rate still hasn't gotten back to normal! I wasn't hurt so all is well. My car is a bit broken but that can be fixed.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.

I know that I have posted this before but it's worth repeating...

Deep down inside we know
that the best gifts
don't come from catalogs
or shopping malls
They don't come in brightly-colored packages
or fancy envelopes
and they're not sitting under a tree somewhere...
The best gifts come from the heart.
They come when we look at each other
REALLY look at each other
and say 'You mean a lot to me'
or 'I'm so glad you're a part of my life'
A gift like that will never go out of style
or be forgotten
or be returned for a different size.
A gift like that can change the world...
