From Mimi, Julian's Mama-
So did everyone get what they wanted for Christmas? Big screen TV, new camera, Ipod,new puppy,blankets, cell. phone?
Today ,I will tell you how ,today, december 25th 2007 , I got the most unexpected gift of all.
I woke up this morning to my child, my terminally ill 4 year old baby boy, talking ,smiling , wanting kisses, and best of all wanting coffee and donut holes... I swear he was meant to be a cop(no offense!)
This has to be the best Christmas ever... Who needs gifts when you have the smile of a child? A child ,whom,I truly believed just less than 24hours ago, wouldn't see Christmas...
He was a chatter box off and on all day , wanting love from his Papy and Mamie, wanting hugs from William( ok ,William, that's enough now) ...Just a wonderful day ...
And I owe it all to our Lord,to our Lord and to you all...Amazing friends who prayed for a Christmas miracle...THANK YOU !!!I will forever be gratefull...
So here is for you ...My beautiful child smiling peacefully ,feeling on his face how soft his new blankie is...Thank you Papy and Mamie...
I wanted to share a poem I wrote a year ago, before our world was completely changed...Has an even greater meaning this year...
Hope you had a wonderful day....
What is it about Christmas that reminds us how much we miss someone?
what is it about Christmas that reminds us how lonely we are ?
What is it about Christmas that reminds us how selfish we can be?
What is it about Christmas that reminds us how unfriendly we can be?
Christmas should be about giving
Christmas should be about helping
Christmas should be about loving
Christmas should be about remembering
Remembering on Christmas Day that it is all about Him,
Remembering on Christmas day that it was all about us,
Remembering on Christmas day how little He was
Remembering on Christmas day how great He is
Never forget on Christmas day that someone is in our heart,
Never forget on Christmas day that we are not alone
Never forget on Christmas day to be giving
Never forget on Christmas day to open your home and your heart.
Because It was on Christmas day that God sent us His son
Because it is on Christmas day that we forget most about God
Because it is on Christmas day that we should always remember
that love , hope ,peace and trust dont only exist on Christmas day...
