Christmas shoeboxes

This summer, when we were back in Roanoke, Bri, Chloe, and Gabby had the opportunity to go with Great Grandma Jean, and buy Christmas gifts for our 2 house helpers and their children.   This is the third year they have been able to do this with Grandma.  She lets them pick anything they want including hygiene items, household items, non-perishable food, candy, and a few toys.  The girls love spending time with Grandma, as well as giving the gifts when Christmas time arrives!

Madame Lolo and Daniel (4yrs)

2 weeks before this picture was taken, Lolo suffered a small stroke.  She spent 1 week in the hospital, and has been resting since.  She continues to have right sided weakness and pain, as well as unclear speech.  She was so thankful for the gift, and was insistent on having her picture taken.

Unfortunately, neither Lolo or Mamize have been able to come to our house for quite some time.  Mamize continues to be busy at home with her 2 children, and Lolo is too weak, and continues to recover from her stroke.   I appreciate both of these Godly women, and pray God continues to give them grace to adjust to their new “normal.”
