Manger Babe and Animal Friends

This is one of Grammie's cards. I just love the variety of animals here--especially those two cats who seem not only interested in the child, but in that bluebird perched up on the manger on the hay near the Babe's glowing halo. (grin)

Merry Christmas!

SISSY UPDATE: Last Friday morning, Clytie went to see her doctor for a follow-up appointment. Here is the story as she told me.

She and her daughter were in the waiting room. The receptionist came out with a slip of paper, looked around, then went back into her office. A few moments later, she was back, glancing around the waiting room with a puzzled look on her face. She returned to her office. A little while later she was back—looked at the slip of paper in her hands, then at my sister. She said, “Clytie?” My sister picked her things up to go in. As she did so, the receptionist apologized, she said she’d been looking for someone in a wheel chair!
The doctor did a myriad of tests. When she was done, she told Clytie, “You are a walking miracle. You shouldn't be here right now." She said, “I don’t know what it is, but you are here for a reason.” Then with tears in her eyes, the doctor embraced my sister.

So this is our Christmas Miracle. Neither Clytie nor I will ever be the same. This miracle has changed both of us for the rest of our lives. Now is the time for miracles. I wonder what God will do next?

I have always loved this card. I have one very similar - maybe the same artist?

What a wonderful story. Your sister is a fighter, she didn't believe what they told her and she did her own thing with a little help from above. We all need to think positive when someone gives us a sentence of doom and gloom.

So happy for your sister, her family, you and your family and your Mom and Dad. Merry Christmas, this will certainly be one you will never forget.

This card is it.

I am so eternally grateful that Clytie is still with you and still sending hearts out to the world.
I don't know what God will do next...but what ever it's a good thing.
Have a happy Friday...Love ya

I've been mad at God for a long time.... That anger justs melts away reading this and knowing that Clytie is alive and kicking! Amen!

I love this adorable card! Do you know if it's in the public domain? I'd like to use it for letters for sponsored children.
