Got this in the mail today, it made my day

This is a very special gift
That you could never see
The reason it is so special is
It's just for you from me

Whenever you are feeling lonely
Or even feeling blue
You only have to hold this gift
And know I think of you

You can never unwrap it
Please leave the ribbon tied
Just hold the box close to you
It's filled with love inside

In her letter she remembered Nanny and said it was a memory box. To hold it and remember all the good times. The prayer she sent was so touching. It's written as if the loved on that passed away was speaking to you. It's long so I just typed a bit of it...

I see the Christmas trees around the world below
With tiny lights, Like Heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow
The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away that tear.
For I am spending Christmas with .... this year ( insert what makes you feel comfortable)

I hear many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
But the sounds of music can't compare with the choir up here.


I pass this along to anyone who is missing a loved one this holiday season... Lisa

When I was hospitalized (when I was 11) I got a box like that with the same poem on it...it was great. i loved it. Until one of our puppies got ahold of it...it was a wooden block. I still have the block and the card that came with it. I still get it out from time to time. Its a great tradition. Its even a better idea if you have no $$ for Christmas gifts.

I love the other poem that was written too. I love getting new poems and quotes to add to my collection.


Thanks :)

I see the countless Christmas trees
Around the world below,
With tiny lights, like Heaven''s stars
reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular
Please wipe away a tear,
For I ''m spending Christmas
With Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs
That people hold so dear,
But the sounds of music can''t compare
With the Christmas choir up here.
For I have no words to tell you
The joy their voices bring,
For it''s way beyond description
To hear an angel sing.
I know how much you miss me
For I feel your breaking heart...
But through our memories oh so dear
We''re never far apart.
I can''t tell you of the Splendor
Or the peace here in this place,
Can you just imagine Christmas
With our Saviour face to face?
I''ll ask him to light your spirit
As I tell him of your love,
Then pray for one another
As you lift your eyes above.
So please let your hearts be joyful
And let your spirit sing,
''cause I''m spending Christmas in heaven
And I''m walking with the King !
