My Christmas Wish is for a dear friend of my hubby's family. First, let me tell
you about his family. They let my hubby live with them his Junior and Senior year
of High School because his parents were busy moving the rest of the family
across the country. (That was the year his oldest brother, grandmother, youngest
sister and parents moved from various locations in the US to other locations in the
US.) And my hubby's parents were going to settle down here in Austin, TX. Well
they sent my hubby down here first and they didn't want to leave him completely
by himself with no one to parent him. So he moved in with this family, they also
had 2 twin boys about my hubby's age. So he's practically a 2nd dad to my
hubby. In fact, when we first were married we moved into the same ward as his
family and he and his wife were so kind to us and helped us to fit right in.

Well, recently he was in a car accident. And is now paralyzed from the waist
down. The doctor's don't know if he'll walk again. So my
Christmas Wish is that
he will get a Christmas miracle and be able to walk again.

Now onto the lovely and talented Debb. I can't wait to see what she created.

Happy Crafting.
