Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to my wonderful BBB readers!  I hope you all have a safe, fun, joyous holiday filled with friends, family, beauty, wonder, and love.  Bonus if you get some downtime to relax with a book :)

This time of year always has me reflecting on the past 12 months, both the challenges and the triumphs.  No matter what happens in a given year, if I look hard enough, I always find that the good in my life continually outweighs the bad.  In my church, we often sing a hymn about counting our blessings, naming them one by one—all it takes is a little counting to realize how much I have to be grateful for.  Among them, I count you.  Thank you for choosing to spend a few minutes of your precious time here.  I appreciate your thoughtful comments, your amazing reading recommendations, and your friendship.  The book blogging community is a wondrous thing; I'm thankful to be part of it.

I want to share this beautiful video about the birth of the Savior.  Even though I can't understand a word that's spoken in it, it's infused with emotion and a spirit that just touches my soul.  Enjoy!  #LightTheWorld


  1. Lovely, Susan! I so enjoy reading about your 'reading' and also whatever else you like to share. I count you as a blessing in my life. Merry Christmas - see you in 2020!

  2. Awww, what a sweet post! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  3. Merry Christmas to you and your family! I hope you have a lovely day.

  4. Beautiful, thanks for sharing Susan. Wishing you and yours an amazing Christmas. I hope you had an amazing day.


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
