Dear PT Family,

Thank You so much for your caring, compassion, and kindness.
Thank You for always being in my corner, for rooting for me, and for your prayers.
Your friendship means the world to me and please know how much I truly appreciate you.

Taking things one baby step at a time.
Admittedly, I am my own worst enemy and my gnawing negativity and constant worry cause so many problems.
Trying my best to be spunky and perky.
Sometimes I need to fake it 'til I make it.
Trying to just breathe.
Talking to a therapist weekly.
Praying A LOT. Reading uplifting books. Journaling.

Thank You for asking about my son.
He turns 21 next week!
He gets so excited about opening presents.
Yet, he has such simple wants...which I find so endearing.
So, I'll spend $20 and get him a stack of things that he loves: chocolate, cookies, bubbles, tops, coloring books, crayons, puzzles.
And we'll have his favorite: a Carvel cake with the chocolate cookie crunchies.
These things will bring him so much joy.

We live in a teeny tiny apartment and we have so much of my son's artwork everywhere.
So, our holiday decorations are set up on a table.
We have a manger.
And an Advent Calendar/Book that opens up into a white, paper pop-up tree.
Each day, my son and I read an inspiring Bible story from the little book that's included.
My son opens a door and puts a little paper ornament on the tree.
He is so excited about this tradition.
He waits patiently for me to get home from work, so that we can "do our tree" together.

My son is also enjoying creating holiday cards.
We are still doing an art project each day.
Our new favorite project is taking Dollar Store art prints and embellishing them with gems, sequins, ribbon, flowers, words, stickers, and wood cut outs.
They turn out really great.

Thank You again for being so caring.
I'm so fortunate to have you all here to turn to.
Thank You for being my soft place to fall.

Hoping to rejuvenate and strengthen my spirit over the holiday break.

Love & Friendship to You All.
You are all Angels.
