We had Christmas with my side of the family at our house on Christmas Eve. Mom and Dad made mexican food-not very tradition but we all loved it! Don, Jamie and the girls + Dirt-didn't get to come down this year. Mom and Dad went up to Tennessee by way of Trenton on the Sunday following Christmas so they did get to spend some time with them. We missed them all being here, but are looking forward to at least Laurie being here for a few days the middle of January!
A meeting was held quite far from earth, It was time again for another birth. Said the angels to the Lord above- "This child needs much love, her accomplishments she may not show. And she'll require extra care from the folks she meets down there. She may not run or laugh or play. Her thoughts may seem quite far away. So many times she will be labeled "different", "helpless", and "disabled". So let's be careful where she's sent. We want her life to be content. Please Lord; find parents who will do a special job for you. They will not realize right away the leading role they are asked to play. But with this child sent from above comes stronger faith and richer love. And soon they'll know their privilege given in caring for their gift from heaven. Their precious charge so meek and mild is Heaven's Very Special Child."
