What a heart-grabber!!! No wonder you are who you are - and I'm with Countrygirl - no accident, this.....

What a very special way to deeply understand who your family was and who you are. Talk about a Christmas Miracle! The Miracle of deep love, sacrifice, hope, and encouragement all rolled into one little ugly skirt!!!

And a great read, JJ. Thanks and congrats - and treat us to more!

I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes after reading your story, not only because I felt like I was there with you but also it reminded me of a far away Christmas when I too received nothing but handmade gifts.
And I wish I still had them!

oh by the way, I kept thinking your story reminded me of something else and couldn't think what. Now , I remember, "The Gift of the Magi" by O. Henry. His story , in content, was no different from yours - (you could use just a "little" counsel to get to HIS perfection, but hey, we all need to start somewhere ---LOL, and most assuredly meaning myself, as I am the lowest of the low and glad to be there)and I , personally, take this to heart. JJ, you have been an inspiration to me on this most eventfull holiday of my life...........Thank you and your most wonderful of parents........

Wishing you and yours all the wonders of your parents' dreams and the security of them as well..........
