A Perfect Gift

Kelli over at "There's No Place Like Home" hosts a show and tell every Friday. Hop on over and see her special treasures along with links from others who participate in this fun little activity

This Friday, I wanted to share with you a gift that my Mom sent me a couple years ago.
It is a family of snowmen - (one snowman representing each family member). I keep it up all winter long because I just love it. I love how Zak's little snowman is on the top of all of us - like an add on to the family - holding his star up the highest. That is kind of how it is in real life - God added Him to us - quite unexpectedly from how we had planned - but in perfect timing to God. He seems to keep his personality and zeal for life held higher than any of us can reach.

When my Mom sent this to me - it was just a perfect picture of our family! Thanks Mom!

Thanks for stopping by. I am glad you did. Trust you have a wonderful weekend.

Blessings,
~Martie

That is cool! My last son (we call him our bonus boy) was unexpected too but our family would not be as loud (he loves to play the drums) if God didn't sneak him in for us!
I enjoyed seeing your gift from your Mom.

My sister got my mom an ornament similar to that. I love your larger version. Snowmen are great cuz you can keep them up longer that the Christmas decorations. :)
