Surprise at my door...

This morning someone came to our door and left a note and twelve presents. The note said "The Twelve Days of Christmas. It's a family tradition we do each year in hopes that this will send you Christmas cheer! Each year we pick someone to surprise, without a doubt, it's your family we realized!! Our family thinks that your family is so kind, that it didn't take us long to make up our minds! The next eleven days to come, I hope will be pleasing for everyone! We hope your holidays are the best! It's so wonderful to know that the Savior is your favorite Christmas guest!! Open one gift per day for the next 12 days. Merry Christmas!! We love you!!
There was no name on the note or the gifts. When Deron brought me the note I cried as I read it. People are so amazing! I would like to thank who ever brought the twelve days of Christmas to my home. That gave us all the biggest smiles on our faces. Thank you so much!!!! Though this journey has brought some of the most challenging times of my life...it has also brought some of the most amazing times as well with all the out reach, love and support from so many. Thank you all so much!!!

God is good!!
