Stories of the lives
of those who have felt
In the corner of the living room stood an attractive and well decorated Christmas tree, along with a meticulously organized coffee table. The Christmas tree lights paled in comparison to the twinkle in Abby’s eyes. The sparkle of joy came from owning her first home this Christmas. Her smile was as warm as a Christmas fireplace.
She’s also a very speedy decorator; Abby received the keys to her new home on Friday and on this crisp December Monday afternoon, her dining table was garnished with pine cones and poinsettias and the walls were framed just perfectly with family photos.
Those photos were of Abby’s husband, Raul, who was at work that afternoon and her two daughters in school. Valeri is 9 and Yoselin is 6. Even though their new home offers separate bedrooms, the two sisters still share one room. Her beautiful home is in the same neighborhood, affording the sisters to stay in the same school with their friends.
Seeing Abby’s comfort and gratitude of being home for Christmas was the perfect Christmas gift for Rehoboth. During this time of celebration, Abby and Raul’s family will celebrate 10 years of marriage and the achievement of two years looking for and desiring to purchase their very own home.
Congratulations to their family and we hope that Abby’s Christmas tamales turn out just as beautiful as her new home every year.
