No. I was shocked earlier when I read that and teared up for you.

They do!

How's sweet Baby?

Thanks for thinking of us, Seawaters.
I am praying the roads & weather are good by then. I've been patiently waiting for my folks to come home, and I'm so excited to see them!!

Now I'm worried about you!!

It would be fascinating to see from afar, and if no one would get hurt. But since we can't have that guarantee, please just BE SAFE!!

Welcome Home

The snow is white and glistening;
The stars shine bright above.
I'm going home for Christmas
Home to those I love.

~~Gladys Billings Bratton

The second section is entitled "The Greatest Gift." One story from this section is entitled "A Gift from the Heart" by Norman Vincent Peale. With your permission (Can't you just hear Louanne saying that?) I want to share the last paragraph and insert CM3's name instead of the name of the person in the original story:

"Strange isn't it? A shy woman alone in a great impersonal city. You would think that nothing she could do would affect anyone. And yet, by trying to give away love, she brought the true Spirit of Christmas into our lives, the Spirit of selfless giving. That was Louanne's secret--and she shared it with us all."

Ryan, I think you and Sugar are right. She is right there with Saint Nicholas, drinking coffee after each glittery sip, saying, "Glitter! Drink up!"
That's a beautiful thought...thanks for sharing this personal gift with us!

I didn't get to read all the posts because I've got to head to bed

but....

I've seen a lot of great things and really touching tributes over the past few days...I just wanted to point out that, in my opinion, changing her title to Christmas Angel was the best, most fitting gesture I've ever seen....when Ryan pointed that out....I stopped and went to look....touching...very touching.....

Nice touch of class from a classy group....

Best board on the net....hands down...
