That wonderful season of joy, smiles, and giving.
You know it.
It’s not about the carols and cookies,
the cyber sales and Santa,
the Hallmark movies and holiday mania.
It’s not about the things you want to GET.
It’s more about the things you want to GIVE.
Wanting to give is one thing…
I want to give my husband more time. Less stress. Reduce his fear of flying. And maybe then an all inclusive ten day trip to Europe.
I’ve seen the Christmas Gift Rule of 4 floating around social media.
Give them something they WANT,
Something they NEED,
Something to WEAR,
and Something to READ.
Not only does it make sense, but it RHYMES!
(I’ve found the best advice often does.)
Of course, when you’re an author, ALL of the gifts are books…
The book they WANT, the book they NEED, the book they’ll WEAR
Or simpler yet:
(How cute are those?!)
the book(s) they’ll READ…
Of course, everyone on my shopping list already has these books…
But that’s the beauty of BOOKS–there’s ALWAYS SOMETHING NEW TO READ!
Wishing you all a Merry Literary Christmas.
