Anyway, one of my favorite parts of the holiday is being with my family. I am so blessed, and I know it. I really don't need a holiday to realize what a great family I have, but it is always nice to send an extra hug with words their way, as well as a prayer of THANKS!!!
So my picture #2 of my Christmas countdown is...
Aren't they just the cutest?!!!
You may have seen my dad around blog land. He is known as "Jim-Dad." His Spiritual gift must be encouragement, for he is always there with an encouraging word. He leaves me some of the sweetest comments. He has NEVER met a stranger! He is also very creative. I don't think there is anything he couldn't make or create if he put his mind to it. He is a daily inspiration to all of us who love him.
My mom, well I think she is simply the greatest. She has always had the patience of a saint to put up with all of us. She is one of the most giving and selfless individuals I know and I want to be just like her when I finish growing up!!! :)
I am one blessed gal!
I have always wondered what kind of parents Mary and Joseph were? They must have been extraordinary individuals for God to trust "His one and only Son" to their tender care. Awesome thought, huh?
So, today is Day #2 of my countdown. Take a minute today to thank the Lord for those parental figures in your life that love and inspire you everyday. I realize many have gone on to be with the Lord, but even the memories once shared with them hold special blessings.
Happy December 2ND Friends!!!
