Feliz Navidad y gracias a todos.

Little Hattie and Jack

Thanks to all of my generous friends and family who helped José and his family with Christmas and life this year. They were so incredibly grateful.

On that note I wanted to share my favorite verse of my favorite Christmas song:

O Holy Night

Truly He taught us to love one another;

His law is love and His gospel is peace.

Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother;

And in His name all oppression shall cease.

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,

Let all within us praise His holy name.

Christ is the Lord! O praise His Name forever,

His power and glory evermore proclaim.

His power and glory evermore proclaim.

Trying to pay it forward

I know there are all kinds of charities looking for donations this time of year and money is tight for most, but Jonathan and I know a specific family who really needs some help. The dad lost his job awhile ago because of a language barrier and hasn't been able to find another job to support his wife and kids. We're planning on getting them a Walmart gift card but things are so tight for us right now that we're not going to be able to give very much. If anyone wants to throw in a couple dollars (or more) we'd be grateful.

Some anonymous people helped us out last Christmas and it meant so much. We'd really like to pay it forward this year even though we still don't have much. Comment or email me if you're interested.

Merry Christmas!
