My oldest three girls all attended the same preschool. Each Christmas the 4 year old class made these adorable painted hand wreaths...they place them on a little dowel to be hung. I had my mother in law make them into little pillows.
Last year my bible study had an ornament swap. If you've purchased anything from Mackenzie childs than you are familiar with their signature black & white checked ribbon & cream gorgeous giftboxes. Well, my girfriend began to open this little number--as soon as I saw the checkered tissue & ribbon I started flipping out--i think i stopped breathing...no way did someone bring this ornament to a swap! My girlfriend had no idea what was inside. Before she even finished opening it she sooooooooooooo sweetly & generoulsy said, "i think you need to take this home".
I'm certain I heard the hallelujah chorus in the background! My precious friend that had brought it to the swap shares the same affection for MC as I do & knew it would magically end up in a home that would treasure it! oh happy day!
I feel sorta guilty sharing that with you on the same post as my little one's heart felt prayer....but we all have our weakness right?
I also want to thank Carolyn Peeler for the sweet blog love today! I have been a fan of hers for some time & am honored to be included in her post! Thank you sweet Carolyn!
Lastly I'd like to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas!!
