Remembering Christmas

Christmas is a very special time in our family, and I am so blessed to be sharing in a very Texas Christmas with my Aunt Donna and her family.  When we first arrived, Donna showed us a book she started keeping in 1994 in which she recorded her family Christmas memories.  The last time we were in Texas was 15 years ago.  I wanted to share what Donna wrote in her book about the circumstances that brought us together...

"It was a special Christmas because all of our family gathered at my house this year for Christmas.  Although what brought us together was Daddy's illness.  We are so very thankful for the grace that has been given us in many ways and for this rare and wonderful blessing of being together for Christmas in Texas.  Our special guest was our own Daddy!  He was able to get a day pass from rehab and spend Christmas Day with us!"

We spent that Christmas in Texas because Papaw was still in the hospital after having several seizures and surgery to remove a brain tumor.  We celebrate again this Christmas and remember the family that is no longer with us but will always hold a special place in our hearts.  What a reminder of the blessing and gift of family.  

 Grandmother, Lauren, Papaw, Papaw-Papaw, Caroline, Patti

Sending you all our love from Texas this year!

Merry Christmas y'all!
