Twenty Years From Now...

Mark Twain

Christmas Time...

"Instead of being a time of unusual behaviour, Christmas is perhaps the only time in the year when people can obey their natural impulses and express their true sentiments without feeling self-conscious and perhaps, foolish. Christmas, in short, is about the only chance a man has to be himself.

Those Christmas Angels

 When we moved, I had hundreds of pounds of books to move and it was going to be costly. Sadly I donated 4 shelves worth and kept one shelf of books that I wanted to keep forever. A lot of them are non-fiction but there are some fiction on the shelves that I have read many times.

Every year around this time, I pull off the shelf... Those Christmas Angels by Debbie Macomber. Odd, that I have no idea what happens in the book, which I read every year and then promptly forget until the next December rolls around... very light-hearted and perfect for the Christmas season!
