Mrs. Claus...she is a crafty one.
Christmas 1982 rolls around and money is tight. I remember very distinctly that Christmas was on a Sunday that year...I remember that because I was so excited to go show off my haul because I knew I was a good girl and I knew I was going to get something fantastic. I don't remember what else I got...and honestly it could be the ONLY thing I got, but at the very end of the gift giving, I got a little crocheted purse with a grandma doll face on the front. In the purse was a little note in which Mrs. Claus herself told me that while Santa gives presents to most kids, the REALLY REALLY good kids get something handmade by her. I took that mint green purse to church and was proud as a peacock. It's one of the few things I vividly remember about Christmases past.
I have been richly blessed by God with 3 of the best boys I am sure He ever put on this earth. I think I might have to give my old friend Mrs. Claus a ring to see if I could ask for a favor...for old time's sake.
