A christmas gesture

december 23 2008

Because the facility my eldest is staying closes tomorrow until the so-maniest of january I wrote a letter to the board, stating that it's their home and it's not a decision that is thought through enough.

As a consequence they had a talk at dinner there and it turned out that some of these young people have no one during christmas and the new year.
They're staying somewhere at a lonely room, just because their home is closed.


I was almost in tears when I heard this.

Even though we don't have much, and certainly no posh christmasdinner, I invited them here for the days.
It's warm and there is company that understands special needs.

I have absolutely no idea how to feed them all and how to manage, but I think that some families will take their children in after all, and I can only hope we'll be able to get some bargains tomorrow just for closing time of the shops.

I should have believed a full 200% in Santa Claus.
I'm sure he would have helped me out.

Now I'll just make the best of it and hope something unexpected goods will happen.

Merry Christmas!


  1. So sweet and awesome of you to open your home for this...thanks for stopping by my blog and I'd like to wish you a very Merry Christmas as well!

  2. greatness and kindness is indeed in your heart dear friend. I believe you will have a very blessed Christmas. Santa Claus doesn't always wear a Red Suit and black boots...He can be in anyone of us as long as you believe.
    Merry Christmas and I'll pray for you and your family and yes the prayer will come from half passed around the globe!

  3. Hi Laane,
    It's really great of you to do that. Hope that you'll manage to fix up something in time for Christmas.

    Have a warm Christmas over at your end. Cheers!

  5. I think it is great of you to take them in Laane. It is so sad they have no place to go. I do hope good things happen for all of you!

    I really admire what you did. It's the right thing to do, and I hope you'll be able to make a nice Christmas for them!

    Merry Christmas to all of you!
