Yesterday a package came to our house in the mail and it was from Maddie! No idea how our little angel worked this out but she mailed a package to Savanna and me! Inside it said that it was an "early Christmas present" to us girls from Maddie and there were two mugs that said, "Merry Christmas from Maddie" and all these photos on them. Isn't this so cute? Like most everyone, Maddie knows that I've always got hot tea or coffee in one of these travel cups most places I go. Now Savanna says she's going to carry this with her to the bus stop each day with some hot chocolate. (By the way, Larry was the one who engineered this surprise!)
Maddie also got me this special keychain ...
Adorable, isn't it?
Here she is, checking out some ornaments on our living room tree. She's getting up and around and enjoying checking out what's on the trees.
She says, "Sniff...sniff...what's this, a candy cane?"
"Visions of sugarplums are dancing in my head!!!"
"Okay, I think I'll just lay here for a while and watch Mommy straighten the living room and pick up all my toys...she doesn't seem to mind, at least most of the time. Can you believe I'm actually able to climb on this couch now? I am one blessed dog."
Here's a special gift that I got at church last night from Juleen Stramiello. It's a little travel set of Bath and Body Works Moonlight Path that she put together for me to take on our upcoming trip to Tennessee. (Yes, Larry and I are still taking that trip once Maddie is all better.) How thoughtful of her!God is so good, to me...all the time.
