And the Greatest of these is Love....

Christmas Eve has reminded me that it is all worth while after all

I have cried so much these past years but rarely have cried with joy.
The present tonight from my Evan...floored me.

Unbeknownst to me Evan had cut this Christmas fabric and sewn it by hand.
He then put in $20 of his own money for me to go to the fabric store.
All by himself..a secret...from a 10 year old boy.
He gets $5 a week allowance.
He was so excited to give it to me.  He insisted that his present be last for me to open.
Love comes back when you are not even looking.
My cup runneth over!!  Tears of joy!!
Tonight at the Christmas dinner we lighted a candle for Granddaddy..
Family presents tonight...Santa in the morning...
Mr. O'Quilts would be pleased that we still had Christmas.
Even more pleased that our girl made it happen.

Oh, my goodness, Diane! That brought tears to my eyes. What a wonderful job you are doing to raise such a wonderful boy! I am so happy for you. Merry Christmas to you and yours. I know it is a tough one, but this has to make it quite a bit more bearable!

Oh Evan, now you have me blubbing. You are a very special young man, with a heart as big as your grandma's.
Bless you all

I thought my heart was already completely full, but you and Evan have just caused it to spill over and flood me with more emotions than I knew I could hold. How very sweet and precious. You're doing a LOT of things right and your dear man would be so pleased.

What a dear boy!
Life is such a mixed bag of good & bad, highs & lows. It is a struggle to concentrate on the good & the highs, but we must. I am so glad you all were able to.
