I am hoping my mom can come for Christmas…so I am preparing in advance, looking for small gifts to put in her stocking ~ something my dad always did for her. She lives in a teeny tiny cabin…so I look for practical things ~ things she can use and that won’t just be clutter for her…but it would be a joy to find meaningful things as well. And then I saw this post at A Holy Experience:
…and I knew it was perfect. I shared the idea with Bill and he said he would work on one for his parents as well. I think it will be a treasure for us all!♥
Now I am looking forward to going to the second hand stores & praying that we will find special containers to hold hand written messages of gratitude. What better gift could we give to those who don’t need more things ~ but would be blessed by our thanks?
“Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.” – Henry Ward Beecher
Sweetest weekend blessings to you all!
