our time seemed too short this year and was over shadowed with one too many urgent care visits but we are thankful for the time we had together!
this year we all drew names as usual. BUT what wasn't usual was what the adults decided to do instead of buying more stuff for each other. we decided to use the money we would spend on one another to bless someone else. we could decide whatever we felt like the Lord was leading us to do. and let me just say, sitting around the living room sharing the way that the Lord used our measly few dollars for others is something i think we all wish to grow into something larger for the years to come. what a special time we had!
