Each story had a different significance and so much love. They are all important no matter how short or long. I was so touched by all the stories. Some stories were about learning how to grieve while others were about giving thanks for the little things, especially for family and good friends. The story that compelled me the most was that of the little girl that was obsessed with books. That little girl reminds me so much of myself. My mother always read to me and my sisters and story time became so much more exciting when I learned how to read. I have never been able to stop reading. I enjoy all types of genres from mysteries to historical fiction and lots of memoirs. The little is so much like me and I hope that many more people decide to devour books as much as that little girl did. The holidays are over but it is still a wonderful book to read at any time of the year. Please pick it up and give the book a try. I truly believe that you will feel blessed and inspired by each story.
