Happy New Year!

We have a New Year’s tradition at my house… We don’t go out on New Years Eve.  As I get older, I often skip the midnight thing and just wake up to a new year in the morning. Last year that tradition was interrupted when a drunk drove through the neighbor’s fence at 2:00 AM. 

Be safe and have a happy New Year!

Christmas Sweater

christmas-sweaterFor Christmas, my sister, Cheryl, gave me the book Christmas Sweater by author Glenn Beck. I just finished reading it. I rarely read a book from cover to cover in one sitting; this book was an exception. 

This masterfully written book draws one into a surprising emotional roller coaster ride that causes you to examine your inner life, core values, thoughts and feelings at the most basic level while all the time being thoroughly entertained. I don’t think it is possible to read the book and not come away a better person for the reading. 

I highly recommend the book. It would make an excellent Christmas gift for yourself or anyone on your gift list. Thank you Cheryl for knowing that. I really love this present and I love you.
