So....Big Daddy seriously *rocks*!!!!!

This may look like an ordinary angel. But, it's not.
Big Daddy brought her home to me, in memory of my mother.
You see, my mother collected angels. Lots and lots of angels.
So, this being the 10th year that my mom has been gone, I have made a special angel Christmas tree and the only ornaments on it, are the angel ornaments that I've purchased in her memory. One per each year. It's beautiful....and pics of that to come soon.

Anyway, with all the sickies around here....Big Daddy had gone to the store and come home with her. Now, I know she looks kinda boring, but she's not. She really is beautiful. And then she has a light inside her that changes colors, sending light thru the prisms all over her and reflecting onto the ceiling and the walls. It is so beautiful.

So, he comes home w/ chicken noodle soup, 7-up, Saltine crackers, toilet paper, Tide and this angel. I was downstairs in the laundry room. (where else would I be?!?! ha ha!) Well, he set her up and turned her on. Then, he called me upstairs. He said, "I saw her and thought you'd like her and she'd remind you of your mom."

I couldn't even speak, I just had massive tears. And once I started, I couldn't stop.

But, this angel actually does have a deeper meaning to me. When my mother "knew" she was dying, she would tell me about these "dream" she would have. (Read my mother's story here and read about the diamond dress....but get a box of kleenex, because it's a tearjerker.) Because I believe my mother was seeing heaven and described to me her diamond dress. And this is exactly the type of dress I pictured when she told me the story.
This gift means so much to me.....

I told Big Daddy that this was probably one of my most favorite gifts he has ever given me.
And I mean it.
