Well ... Christmas is over and The tree's are packed up and in their place. The ornaments are safe and sound in the attic..... Seems like Christmas was here and gone in a flash ...
I told all my kids this year that I wanted something from the heart for Christmas. To write me something and embellish it or whatever they wanted. Frame it etc.... What I never expected was the blessing that this turned out to be !!!!!!
I know that three of them are struggling College students and My 14 year old does not have a job yet..SO ... I wanted to save everyone money and make things easy for them...
It ended up being the best gifts that I have ever received
These are the letters that were so beautifully written for me.. My son (the quiet one) framed his speech .. I had no idea that in college he had to do a speech about a HERO. HE made an A and found out that he wrote about me. HE framed this fro me and put sand in the bottom and shells ( Sarah) I know helped him on that task . I was so touched by his paper and that I was his hero. I cried HARD and had no idea that he had given this speech . TOUCHED me beyond words.
Then one of my twins framed this beautiful letter from her in this white washed frame with a blue butterfly.. (SHE knows I love them) She wrote some of the most touching words to me. (CRIED) all happy tears....
The other twin gave me this beautiful letter and had it in this most beautiful shell mosaic frame .. (CRIED ) they touched me so much and the words were beyond priceless to me .
The last daughter 14 year old when I woke up had written me the cutest letter ever and pretty much told me I was the CHEESE to her Macoroni and that never in her day was there a wound that the INDIAN WISH could not heal... See the indian wish I made up to heal all BOO BOO's when they were all growing up .
These letters talked about personal things and touched me beyond words.. I cant tell you all what a gift this has been to me.
see some of the frames .. They even took time to frame these beautiful letters with things I love.. I am most me by the sea and I love a blue butterfly .. THEY KNOW MAMA !!!
This one is from My cousin Debbie...She typed me the most beautiful letter talking about our childhood and special things.... MADE me cry (all this crying ) Happy tears though .. These are also things I will GRAB !! (you know ..if a fire )
This to me was a CHRISTMAS of special and Home made and from the HEART gifts.. I cant think of better gifts.
