Thanks, Ladies!

I'll be putting it out as an e-book type story soon, I think... (yeah, should have done that before Christmas, but oh well Hilarious! )

And isn't that where it really lives, Charleen? Thumbs up

I honestly think the original inspiration for the story was my favorite Johnny Mathis Christmas song "The Spirit of Christmas."

"The little gift you send on Christmas day
will not bring back the friend you turned away.
May I suggest the secret of Christmas
is not the things you do at Christmas time,
but the Christmas things you do all year through."

I've tried really hard to live my life by those words
