I really needed a heartwarming read about now. As we near the first holidays without my dad I’ve been dreading them a bit, especially Christmas. It’s my favorite time of the year and we have so many wonderful traditions started by my dad. My favorite was the way we got our advent log. Some friends came over one night and forgot to set their parking brake. It rolled down the hill knocking over a birch tree. Never one to waste things, my dad took it and cut 25 holes into it where we place candles to make it into an advent log. The idea of lighting it without him for the first time in my life is hard to face.
I just started reading Chicken Soup for the Soul Merry Christmas this week and I absolutely devoured it! Traditions Worth Sharing was one I loved and that reminded me of our advent log. Others where I shared excerpts with my kids were The Perfect Gift and Holiday Shenanigans.
While I end up reading all of these books for some reason I always go to the titles that draw my attention the most. Often it’s in others though that I find the most inspiration and hear warming stories.
This year Chicken Soup for the Soul: Merry Christmas will warm you from the inside out. What a fun gift to give as a stocking stuffer, especially to someone who could use a little pick me up around the holidays.
