Christmas in July news


Unfortunately, I will not be hosting Christmas in July on the blog this year. I have some other plans for the month of utmost importance. Luckily, Hallmark Channel (July 9th - 25th) and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries (started June 25th - July 8th) are hosting theirs so there will plenty to watch. Yay!

I will post my upcoming book releases for the coming season in August or September on Rudolph/LEON Day. Watch for the yearly Christmas music post from Ken at Sounds of Christmas in October.

2020 #Christmas Spirit #ReadingChallenge and #Readathon - Wrap-Up #CSReadathon


Sorry I'm so late with this wrap-up. A lot going on in life and the world right now. It's very distracting. Turns out, I had a very distracting holiday season as well. Managed to read two Christmas books. That's it. 2020 was just weird. I'm sure we would all agree.

Anyway, it's a new year. Happy New Year, by the way!

How did you do on the reading challenge/readathon? Share your wrap up link in the linky below. It's the same linky as the sign-up so just add "wrap-up" when you enter your name, like so "Michelle@truebookaddict-Wrap-up" (you don't have to put a blog name, you can just put your name).
 
Mister Linky's Magical Widgets -- Easy-Linky widget will appear right here!
This preview will disappear when the widget is displayed on your site.

Hope to see you again next year!

A Festive #Yuletide - It is a Wonderful Life #Christmas


I was watching that quintessential classic, It's A Wonderful Life tonight while I was decorating more cookies. (As many know, I like to keep my Yuletide celebrations going until Twelfth Night.) I usually watch this movie every year, but this year something was different. The message meant more to me. At the end, I was in tears. I've always been touched by this film, but this year, it really made me reflect. 

We've all had a rough year...the entire world. Many have lost loved ones, friends. We've been separated from our families and our social groups. Our way of life is not the same. Will it ever be? These are the questions and these are the struggles we are all having. 

As I look ahead to the new year with hope, I keep in my mind the message of It's a Wonderful Life. It IS a wonderful life. Every single one of us matter. Every one of us would be missed if we were gone. Every life we have ever touched would be changed forever if we never existed. 

So, think on it. I know it's hard right now, but just being alive is wonderful. Our family and friends knowing we are out there somewhere, and finding comfort in it, is wonderful. Hope is wonderful, and so is love. 

It really, truly is a wonderful life. 


Always in spirit...
