Yesterday my mom gave this tiny Christmas tree. It is only about 8 inches tall...so sweet. I am enjoying my family a lot this season, which is a true blessing. Holidays are usually a tough time for me, but God is giving me grace everyday. Grace within my heart and also grace to spend time with them. My mom has her house all decked out with snowmen and snowflakes and twinkle lights. It is wonderful to see my mom's creativity come back. She has struggled quite a bit for a long time with her own shortcomings and trial, but this year she seems to have an open heart.
Today I am so grateful for open hearts...both mine and hers.
