December Daily {23}

Hi Friends

I mentioned earlier in the month that December
Holds many special days
Today is another one
I woke my youngest boy up early
To give him a gift before I left for work

27 years ago today
Our little family walked up the stairs of the 
Mono Country Court House
Into the chambers of Judge Roberts 
And finalized the adoption of 
Jeremy Mellor
Who became
Matthew James Cain forevermore

From a 4 month old little peanut
To our now precious 29 year olde adult
He has blessed our lives with JOY
We are so thankful that God allowed this guy
To become a member of our family

I wore this fun little Christmas penguin today
He makes me smile

In recent years it has become a challenge to me
To seek JOY in every single day

I was so happy to find this sweet
Goblet with bottle brush trees on Etsy
That I purchased for the Christmas season
This piece is on my bedside table
A reminder to seek JOY every morning

When I purchased it
The owner of the shop also sent me
A fun ornament to match with the word JOY on it as well
Thank you Becky from Timewashed on Etsy
For your beautiful work

I love the blingy toppers

And, of course, the reminder of JOY

This is my final December Daily post
I will be back tomorrow
With a different type of post

You have been a blessing to my heart
As you have left your kind comments
And words of encouragement 
During a month that sends my emotions
On a roller-coaster ride

I wish you could hear my hearts JOY
As I read each word

Blessings to All 
On this December 23rd


  1. What a wonderful blessing to have your son! As I am sure you have been a blessing in his life. Very evident in that smile. Love your bottle brush trees. What a beautiful reminder to have joy! Merry Christmas.

  2. You know that the game is going to create a thug! Just kidding. If he's with you now, and has been with you for the last 24 years, I don't think he has "thug" in him. Best wishes to you and your family in 2015!

  3. I am so happy to hear of your blessed son who you treasure. God bless you!

  4. What a wonderful story! Happy Birthday to you son!

    May love, peace & joy fill your heart and surround you today dear Cindy.

    Love, hugs & prayers ~ FlowerLady

  5. Congratulations to him and your family. xoxo You are so fortunate to have each other.


Hi Friend, I read and cherish every single comment you leave! You bring Joy to my heart! Blessings, Cindy
