Waiting for the Snowflakes...

Today is a day for the Rockefeller's....my husband and I (Molly too) will go pick out our Christmas tree this afternoon. Our plans for the day include, picking the perfect, sweet, lonely tree, and trimming it to look glorious in all its wonder. There will be plenty of hot cocoa (I make this from scratch with cocoa powder, honey, vanilla, and milk) and plenty of Christmas music and movies (also some football for the husband)! I am going to cherish these next two days, the man of the house has been slaving away, working for a week straight. We made it through the roughest week!

I have been busy working on articles, and preparing for Christmas....with only one car, I do a lot of on-line shopping to fulfill the Christmas lists. Everyone has to make sacrifices, mine was to sell my beloved car so we could afford to move. Oh well, what is one silly car in exchange for your dreams?

Today is definitely a much better day....I suffer from anxiety (due to PTSD) and have been receiving some amazing, Godly counseling over the past six weeks. It has helped tremendously. God has definitely carried me through this storm, and He will continue to hold me and guide me. What an amazing walk in faith...

On another note, Molly's Christmas present came in the mail yesterday; however, that dog has a knack for knowing when a present is for her....she stood on her two hind legs while I opened the box, and well, you guessed it, this Mama has to buy some more gifts for Christmas day. Ah well, she was over the moon and slept with her new toy all night. I will have to get a picture for you guys next time....

Merry Christmas, and blessings to everyone,

Jaci

(I will post some pictures of the tree trimming tomorrow (hopefully), tomorrow is a much treasured family day!)

It sounds like a perfect day. I'd love to have a real tree again, but I have a daughter who's allergies were really bad when we had them, so we've decided the fake one is best for her. I burn candles that smell like pine though :-)
Blessings,
