Another Great Gift
The photo above is another special gift I received this past Christmas that I'd like to share because I think it also makes for a wonderful gift idea. It is a photo of all 16 grandchildren, plus a photo of each family (just the kids) represented. My mom is the one who put all the work into this, but I couldn't help but think what a great gift this would have been for HER.....the grandmother of all these precious kids.
Several months in advance, my mom sent each child a special T-shirt with the number/order in which they were born. Each shirt reads, "I'm # (?) gift to my Grandma and Grandpa. Romans 8:16. Then, our assignment was to take a picture of each kid wearing their shirt, and email it to Mom. It was quite a chore getting all of us to do this in a timely manner, but lo and behold, we got it done, and this was the result.
What makes this so special is that we all live in different states and don't get to watch all the nieces and nephews grow up, so this gift is truly a treasure.
Mom.....you're amazing and I thank you for blessing US with such a meaningful gift. We love and miss you!
Stay tuned for one more awesome gift idea......another from my sweet mom!
