Hi Everyone –
I know, I know, I’m running two Blog Hops at once…
I love the holidays and meeting new readers, and what better way than a fun Holiday Blog Hop, right?
So I have a kid story to share about wishes… My daughter (Who is 21 and has heard me tell this story many times) was asked this question for her elementary school newspaper: “If you ever caught a leprechaun, what would you wish for?”
Many of the kids asked for money, cars, video games, but my 6 year old daughter proudly wished for “A Shaved Ice Recipe”… LOL
The innocence of that wish always makes me smile, because so often we wish for money or a house or a car, something that will make us feel more secure instead of something that brings us joy. I love Christmas shopping because I love to find gifts for people I care about that weren’t on a list. I love to give them something that they didn’t even realize they wanted.
Books have always been a fun gift because you can introduce a new author to a friend or family member. I remember giving Panda her copy of The Phantom Tollbooth and watching her hesitantly open the cover. It’s still one of her favorite books of all time.
And my son, Reno, isn’t a big reader, but he was excited to get the newest book in the “Young Templar” series. He hadn’t even known the new one was out!
A gift doesn’t have to be expensive to bring someone JOY… I think that’s my favorite part of the season…
