is giving. 

As I shared in a recent post, Wade and I don't buy Christmas gifts for one another. Instead,we do something with our money for someone else. This year, we bought Christmas gifts for some families in Mexico with whom we're closest.  

One of the families is one I have shared with you before. Merlan's family.  Merlan is from an abusive background and her sister, Andrea, is physically and mentally handicapped because of that.  As you can read, here, her life has turned around drastically, praise God!

The best part of this particular day was watching Andrea receive her gift.  It's one of those dogs that barks and walks around.  Her smile was unforgettable. I just wish I had thought to video it!

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what Christmas is all about :)  

Feliz Navidad!
