Not Every Day Is Totally Great And That's Okay!

It's December, Christmas is almost upon us, and the days pass in a scurry of busy activity. Some days are fun snowflake making days, but some days don't turn out as well as we hope. Some days there are harsh words and stubbornness. Some days you drop your frozen fruit on the floor. And some days your book sales are disgustingly dismal.

But the great thing about less then stellar days is the fact that they are just a small piece of the puzzle we call life. The good days, the apologies, the time spent with friends and family make those bad moments seem to disappear. Or they at least make us appreciate the good moments a bit  more.

Amazingly enough, the beautiful Christmas book by Eileen Spinelli titled Together At Christmas shares this same idea. It is a story of ten cold mice who leave their huddle one at a time to find shelter from the storm. Each does indeed find a place of refuge, but in the end they realize something even more important then enjoying a cozy dwelling alone.

Well, that about wraps it up for this week. Join me next week for another exciting episode, same crazy time, same crazy channel. And feel free to drop by my personal website, Fun With Aileen, any day of the week for even more on reading, writing, my very own early grade chapter book, Fern Valley, the sequels, Return To Fern Valley,  and Cooking In Fern Valley, along with my very first picture book, Quack and Daisy! I'm also on twitter @AileenWStewart if you want an extremely brief glimpse into my days.
