"I can't come this year, Mom. I just can't afford it, but maybe next year!" My heart sank. She is my youngest, my baby girl. And then, Christmas Eve...suddenly..without warning she is there. In a rainstorm, traveled seven hours alone..she came home. And with her a piece of my heart could rest and enjoy the season. She was home! Thank you, God!

What a wonderful Christmas present! I'm so happy for you.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your lovely and kind words.

I don't live to far from you. Just in OC. Maybe some day we can meet up and have lunch. There is another blogger that lives by you and we keep trying to get together too.

Have a wonderful New Year!

I just found your blog through Tina's at Cherry Hill Cottage...I was in tears over the last post you left...I feel the same about our little girl...then I read your bio...WOW! I was just wondering where is Riverside Ca. The reason I I found out a few weeks ago...that we will be moving to Sacramento, CA. for about 3 to 4 years from our life long home in Texas!! Crazy stuff (yea we just bought about 8 acres a little over a year ago and this was the year we were suppose to start building our dream home, guess that will have to wait!)...just interested in getting to know the area we are moving to...gotta find some antique malls, re-sale shops and unique places to help me feel like I'm home...thought maybe you were close by!

Blessings to you and I'm off to read more about you!
