Welcome to the gift of an Advent Calendar. I have always loved Advent calendars. When I was little, I just couldn't wait to open each little door and find the surprise waiting there.
Today's gift is about the special gift of giving. My gift for you is a story, a beautiful song, and a print.
The Special Gift of Christmas.
This is a painting I did of the house where my mother lived during that special Christmas. I called the painting, My Dear Little House. I thought you might enjoy it.

My Mom, Doris was featured in the South Burlington Free Press newspaper yesterday. She is 86 years old but still giving. She collected over 700 pounds of food for the food shelf from the place where she lives. This article was published in the local newspaper's Facebook page.
Last year she was interviewed by the television station and here is her interview.
My mother has been so instrumental in teaching me about the gift of giving all throughout my life. I created the print from a painting I did years ago of My Dear Little House. I hope that the image fills your heart with joy.
Jackie Evancho sings about God's grace surrounding us, and the pledge to do the very best we can to heal the broken hearted, feed the hungry and help the less fortunate in honor of Him.
"Help us do Your will Oh Father,
In the name of all that's true,
And we'll see in one another
The loving image of You."
