My cup runneth over!

There is not better way to start this entry than by just saying my cup runneth over. The past couple days I have felt so much love and so blessed. I truly feel that in the midst of trials our blessings are so much more apparent. I am grateful for all of the beautiful people in my life that are doing things to brighten my day and touch my heart. By surrounding myself with good people at all times it is amazing how much they lift me up especially when I need it most. So, here are some of the amazing people that have touched me so deeply this week.
First off my sweet little girl. The other day she wanted to take some of the money that she has saved and buy some books at the buy one get one free book fair for her friends. She managed to get a lot of books and was very excited! So, here is where the best part comes in...
Mommy "Regan who are you going to give those books to?"
Regan " I am going to give one to Phu yu, katie,Pia, A, Elanore"... and she kept going
Mommy "Did you say A?"(keeping her name private)
Regan"yes, mommy I am going to give A a book for Christmas!"
I was very surprised because A is the class bully. She has picked on Regan many times as well as the other girls in the class. I have seen it first hand. The teachers have a real hard time with this one. I am always telling Regan and her friends to just try. So, you can see why I was so surprised that she said A.
Mommy "That's great Regan is she being nice to you?"
Regan "Well mommy she sure is trying."
ahhh.. I just love that girl. She has the biggest heart and I am SOOOO proud of her!!!!

Secondly this guy is pretty amazing as well. Jason's father has a great relationship with Santa. So, he called him up and asked him to come to Regan's class as well as the special day classes in their school. Jason says that he has a real father son relationship with Santa! wink!!! The kids LOVED him!!!! He is the best guy ever!!!

Some of the Special students all most knocked him over when he came into the classroom. They were so excited. He held the kids and did such a good job! The teachers kept telling me what an amazing Santa he was to take the time to hold each special child in ALL 8 SPECIAL CLASSES!

Collin was not sure at first.......

BUT then he figured it out!!! wink!!!

I don't know what was more exciting seeing Santa or seeing Daddy in his classroom!!! He was one happy boy!


Last night while we were eating dinner the UPS man came to our door with two packages. One for Collin and one for Regan. The one for Collin was from Eli's Angels They are an amazing charity that sends cheer mail to children with life threatening illnesses or terminal illness. So, every month he gets a book from them. In the month of December how ever they send him a nice big package filled with all kind of wonderful goodies! THANK YOU so much!!! You are wonderful!!!!!

Earlier in the day the kids received a package in the mail from Mrs. Pam and the preschool pen pals. This is such an amazing woman that we have never met. She found out about Collin along with other children and talks about them with her students. They pray for them and send them notes. Yesterday Collin and Regan each received a book from them. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Finally the package for Regan was from my mom. She has been busy making some WONDERFUL things for Regan that included....
TWO adorable Christmas dress

And one amazing alligator apron!!!!

Check Spelling

Regan was so excited about it that she wore it to bed!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH MOM!!!
It made Regan's day to know that you love her so much to take the time to make those things for her!! You are the best Poppie ever!!!!

So, now it is plain to see why my cup runneth over. I feel so loved and blessed. THANK YOU all for your love an support!!!!!!!

What sweet memories! You will never forget it and you have your blog to look back. You are "touching" people as much as they are "touching" you.
