The doorbell rang. There stood Rosie's teacher from last year, Mrs. Small. Holding a beautifully wrapped gift, peeking out of it, an adorable little mouse wearing a vintage-style santa suit.
Unwrapping the present, revealed the sweetest book ever, 'Santa Mouse Stories', by Michael Brown. A fortieth-anniversary re-print about a shy little mouse. She enclosed a handwritten note, explaining she'd heard Rosie wasn't feeling well and letting her know she missed seeing her in the hallways at school.
People have been so kind. Our little mouse is getting a little better each day. I'm so thankful everything is heading in the right direction. We're lucky. It easily could've gone the other way.

This Christmas, enjoy every minute with those you love. For you really never know, what tomorrow might bring.
