My youngest brother K, who is currently a nomad since my parents moved out of the country and he's in college, is visiting us for Christmas. We didn't travel to see D's parents (who we saw last weekend) since D had to work today and has to work Saturday. K is helping me bake for Christmas dinner since he's a wonderful cook.
My advent secret prayer buddy was Life in Mazes (her blog is private). My intentions for her were that she and her husband would be able to find peace and hope even while grieving the EDD of Nicky and that they would be able to feel joy and hope in their continue efforts towards TTC and adoption. I asked for the intercession of St. Nicolas, LIM's babies in heaven Nicky and Sam.
She was also my secret prayer buddy and sent me a prayer box charm and Mary and Jesus visor clip, both of which I love. I've got the box on my key chain right now and the visor clip is on the visor (obviously!). She also sent me a lovely letter and a Christmas card photo of her and J.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas celebrating the birth of the Lord with their loved ones.
