Most often, the best gifts come from the giver's heart and cost nothing...but mean the very most to the receiver.
Months ago when Lu was asking for ideas for us for Christmas, I asked her to paint me a few Christmas scenes and this is what I was thrilled to open on Christmas morning:
This is a view from my computer area...I put the 3 pictures she painted in a wire thrifted holder that was found this summer in Minneapolis. It feels like its just been waiting for these!
But the middle painting is the gift that surprised me most when I opened it...a memory of our trip to see the Wicked musical!
I will treasure this forever.
