Double Blessings

Today our daughter and her husband arrived from Texas. They are spending a week with us since they will not be able to be home for Thanksgiving or Christmas this year. We are so excited to have them with us, and look forward to spending times together as a family.

And, also arriving from Texas this afternoon, in the mail. was a box full of wonderful treasures, from a very generous lady in blogland. I won this beautiful," most appropriate for me-
the snowman collector that I am" type gift, from
Cheryl's giveaway. If you never visited her blog I promise you, that you would be so impressed with her photography and her ability to write out her thoughts. Her photography helps one realize just how beautiful the state of Texas is. Her blog is cottagefarmvilla.blogspot.com/ The gift she sent was packaged attractively, and even included a lovely homemade card. Really, this gift was made for me, and I am so thankful that I was the winner. Thank you so much, Cheryl.

Beautiful couple! Between holiday visits are nice too...

Thanks for the blog tip...I sometimes need a peek back at my former location.

I've considered collecting snow men...real ones...figuring that it would be a collect that won't take up storage space during the other three seasons (smile!)

Enjoy your family time and your gifts. How precious!

People matter most this time of year. I hope my life shows that as Thanksgiving and Christmas approach. I don't want to get caught up in the materialism and busyness. I want memories that matter. Love and laughs exchanged.

God bless your time together.

Oh my, you sure scored on a number of levels!

I agree with the others who've mentioned how much your daughter looks like you. And it would also appear that your holiday season will be extra-special - - the sort that only we mothers know about.

Blessings on all of you!
