I love to play Secret Santa and I have one set of gifts ready to be packed and sent by December 1st. I know that my friend will be surprised and happy and thinking about their opening up a huge box with lots of presents always makes me smile.

babetoo, it is not the price of the gift that touched me but that my friend knew it was on my dream/wish list and wanted to make a dream come true for me. We each have had our own hardships of late and she wanted to put a smile on my face like I have done for her in the past. That is all.

I'm smiling just reading all these stories!!! It warms my heart.

My 3 brothers have decided to come visit this weekend. I broke 3 bones in my foot and can't get around too well. My dd is coming over tonight to help me get things ready for tomorrow and spending the night. This will be fun!!! I feel bad that she's leaving the grandkids home with daddy but I'm smiling that we'll be able to spend some quality time together.....cooking, learning, laughing! I'm smiling because she really gets it! I'm so proud of her.

Barb
