Thank you! To all who have been following my blog throughout the year, I extend my sincere thanks for stopping by for a read. As I write this post, I thought I would share a photo & a couple of suggestions for a winter read or two.
This Christmas Eve morning, the sky was amazing with a huge cloud hanging over the bluest sky that I have seen for about a month!
For those of you who look forward to some holiday minutes to curl up with a warm cuppa and a good read, I would like to recommend a couple of titles.

Saying Thank You by Monica Vasa, M.D. is a timely children’s read with colourful nature illustrations by Alaina Louise. The story begins with a parent’s explanation to child of the word “gratitude”, the concept of being thankful. Throughout the day, in this story, there are so many moments and relationships for which to give thanks as portrayed in the vibrant illustrations of rainforest wildlife. The power of uttering a simple “thank you” is clearly conveyed. In a fast-paced world, these words are still much-needed.
