Christmas Miracles

So we're talkin about Christmas miracles.....
I got one for sure :)
Starting with this humble little gift....
The kitschy retro goodness is miraculous, I know, but the BIG miracle lies in who it's goin to. And this Sailor Moon truly is a miracle, too! I wanted so badly to give this exact doll with the gift but it's a slippery fish on ebay..... We'll, I was helpin a gal have a yard sale recently and before I opened one of her boxes labeled "toys" I said "I hope there's a Sailor Moon doll in here"........ For real!!! I'm often late folks, but never a liar ;)
And this is THE miracle who's gettin that miracle :)
We have recently connected with the little girl who was born to us 13 years ago. She found us through a google search of our names. Of all places, it led her straight here to Boo Bobby. I never had specific reasons for beginning this blog and don't seek to broaden its viewership. I'm thankful that I did. I'm thankful that I do stuff that doesn't really "mean" anything sometimes. I'm often proven wrong on that point.....

I've been staring at this particular photo for a few minutes. It makes me cry.
Happy, thankful tears that carry a heavy gratitude. I am hit hard with just how much all of our lives have been covered in grace......

So yes.
Absolute miracles.
They happen.
