How I pulled off Christmas...

 ...these, folded up and wrapped into these....

Merry Christmas Everyone!!! Hope you have a wonderful, safe and happy day filled with making wonderful memories!

And don't forget the real reason of Christmas - about the One who humbled Himself by coming down to earth as a helpless baby to save you from your sins!

What did you say?? Christmas is in 3 days?? Oh... ya I haven't thought that far ahead yet. Making Christmas presents isn't even on my radar yet! 

What's that? Your Christmas presents are all made and done?? And even wrapped??? Well, good for you. I'm glad you have had lots of time to do that, and you are soo on top of things!

Why aren't I done yet? Why haven't I even started mine or decided what I'm making for that matter?? 

Well because, I just got home today from spending 3 weeks in another state caring for some awesome kiddos while their Mommy went to Ukraine to adopt their little brother. There were 8 kids I was responsible for, the last week they were all on Christmas break, most of them were sick, and two of them ended up in the hospital with pneumonia and are still there. Crocheting really hasn't been very high on my priority list, nor have I had a lot of spare time on my hands.

No, I'm not a saint. I'm tired, sick, and a bit cranky - not feeling very saint-like. I was just doing what God laid on my heart to do by helping them out in that way with their adoption.

Nice talking to you too. Glad you don't have to work on Christmas presents the next few days like someone else does. Good bye.

Just a conversation I am having over Blogger with my imaginary friend... ;) You should try talking with them sometime. It's fun.
