This year, we had trouble finding that perfect song. Then we received the Signing Time Christmas DVD/CD and after watching it and listening to it many times during treatments, Vivs favorite song became The Spirit of Christmas...probably because it was slow enough to sign most of the words. She would sign with it in the van, during treatments and whenever I would sing it to her. We thought "THIS WILL BE PERFECT FOR OUR VIDEO THIS YEAR!", but she refused to sign it during practice, even with the promise of homemade chocolate marshmallows...so we let her play the tone bells instead.
We are thankful to God for Vivs continued wellness streak since September and are curious to see what's happening with her airway tumors at her next MRI on January 8. We are always grateful for so many of you who are part of our support system, whether we see you frequently or only keep in touch through social media. We are surely rich in friends. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
When you get wrapped up in all of the "seasonal stuff" that Christmas brings, please don't forget why there's even a Christmas to celebrate in the first place...Jesus Christ, who came to save us from our sin and give us a purpose in living. He is worth getting to know more as it will be a decision that you will never regret. He will guide you in confusion, comfort you in grief and give you the deepest joy you will ever know.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Seth, Amy and Vivs!
