We had a special guest last night and Santa made sure she had a stocking filled with goodies. It was nothing special! Make up remover wipes, Altoids, nail files, slipper socks, a dish cleaning brush, and some other trivial things.
We took turns emptying the goodies, one at a time, and with each item she squealed with glee like it was exactly what she was wanting. When we were done, she looked at me and said: "This is my first stocking I've ever had."
It broke my heart a bit when she said that. You see, my mother-in-law is the sweetest woman ever and dotes on her sons, grandchildren and now 6 great grandchildren every holiday. She is the biggest giver I've ever known.
I am so thankful she finally got her first stocking. And I guarantee there will never be another Christmas without one. ❤🎁❤️
