Who else needs comfort and reassurance during these scary times?
In our family, comfort takes many forms.
Mugs of hot chocolate topped with whipped cream.
Snuggly blankets. Fuzzy socks. Lit candles. Lots of hugs.
And favorite stories.
This holiday season, perhaps more than any other, we need to hold on to that which makes us feel comforted and calmed.
We need heart-warming, re-affirming stories.
On that note, might I do a little self-promotion and recommend Chicken Soup for the Soul: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas – 101 Tales of Holiday Love and Wonder, a collection of feel-good, holiday-themed, non-fiction stories.
And, if you turn to page 140, you will read “A Timeless Gift” — written by me! It’s my story of our family calendar and its place in our holiday traditions.
May your holidays be filled with good stories and good health.
