The day after!
Christmas this year was full of many surprises. Just being surrounded by family and friends is the greatest gift. This year I received a great Christmas surprise. Every year I take great care with my children's stocking. The stockings are one of the best memories my children have of Christmas. This year I hung 4 stockings. One for each of my 2 boys, one for my oldest son's girlfriend and of course one for me. Every year on Christmas morning the stockings are full and its the first thing my children open. Of course mine hangs empty. This year I woke up around 1am on Christmas morning, unable to sleep. So I went into the living room to make sure all was in place for the morning, and much to my surprise, My stocking was also full. The tears of joy started to fall and I knew that all was well. It touched my heart so much to find out that my oldest son and his girlfriend had snuck into my home late in the night and left me with this wonderful gift. I know Christmas is not all about gifts, and the love those children left me in that stocking filled my heart with so much joy.
I hope you all had an amazing Christmas!!
