My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
I just had to post about the new tradition I am starting this year. My husband bought me a wooden Advent Calendar for my birthday, it's got 24 little boxes to put treats in, open one each day. So, I got some Dove dark chocolates, and filled each box, so my husband, daughter and I each get a piece each night, and I just printed off 24 Bible passes to stick in each one. I started with Luke Chapter 2, but that only has 20 verses, so I found 3 passages that prophesy Jesus' birth, put them at the beginning, then the very last one is of the Magi presenting their gifts, so we'll read that on Christmas Eve. I can keep the passages in there from year to year, and just fill it with the treats every year. I think I'm going to LOVE this new tradition!
Anyone else start any new traditions this year, or in recent years?

OK, so last night was our first night opening a box in the Advent Calendar. My daughter read the first passage: Dec 1: Genesis 3:15, And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”
She looks at me and asks, "What does that have to do with Christmas?" I just shook my head. "Why as I spending all this money to send you to a parochial school when you don't even know that is the first prophesy of the Savior????" Silence. "Ohhhhhh, yeah". I think she gets it now. Hopefully tonight's passage will go a little better: Dec 2: Isaiah 9:6
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
