Christmas day with Mystic. She was very excited and happy this Christmas. She really knew it was a special day for her.

by Barbara F.

This Christmas with Mystic was so different than last year. Last year, she wasn't sure, 1) what this holiday was 2) if she could even trust me yet 3) WHY was this day different than the others.
 Until November 2012, Mystic never really showed real happiness. She was content and had everything she needed, but she didn't show "happy". After I became ill and was admitted to the hospital, her whole attitude shifted. When I came home, it was like she wanted to show me just how happy she's been the whole time she's been with me!
Christmas morning was no exception! She did things that she's NEVER done. She started by waking ME up, which shocked me! I ALWAYS had to wake her. After that, I would go downstairs, she would wait 5-10 minutes, come down, go up on the couch and lay there for 10-30 minutes before going for our walk.
NOT THIS DAY! She actually JUMPED on me to wake me up! SHOCKED! I laughed and laughed! She couldn't wait to get downstairs and neither could I! I hope you enjoy the album, it tells a story of just how happy she was and still is. I think she finally knows that I love her, this IS her home and she's NOT going anywhere (without me), she's here to stay and snugglecuddle with her MaMa!

Dear Barbara -

I am having to dictate this , but have read (or more accurately, listened to my computer read it to me) your account of Mystic’s second Christmas and wanted to say that the story of wee Mystic would make a wonderful children’s story. There is an almost pre-ordained aspect to how you found her and what an important part of your life she has become. The text of this story reminds me of my own little soul-mate .. Dunkley (did you manage to access the website that tells her story?)

Love to you & your family and loving hugs to Mystic from James.

Well, as most of you know, IF YOU KNOW ME, Mystic is the gleam in my eye! So, it only stands to reason that if, there\'s a happy event, it would center around her! Especially if it\'s not about one of my kids or grandkids.I\'m a very proud MaMa that is a...
