You really must take the time to hear and see these two things.

Many, many, many years ago on a Christmas Eve morning Clay and I awoke to our radio alarm clock which was and is always set to the local NPR station. The voice that woke us up that particular morning was that of an older man. His voice was low and smooth with a slight country twang. Instead of rolling over and punching the snooze button for just ten more minutes of sleep, Clay and I were instantly mesmerized by the the man’s story and we lay quietly on our sides smiling into each other’s faces with the delight of being awake in the quiet morning and having the sweet moment of hearing this story. That was at least 12 years ago.

Now, every year around Christmas we search for John Henry Faulk’s Christmas Story to play for our children. It’s more delightful every year. I hope you can take the time to read it, or listen to it even though Christmas has passed. I will forever call candy canes, stripedy candy.

My next recommendation is that every person on the face of the planet must go right now and watch all four episodes of Wives and Daughters. If you’ve already had the privilege of partaking in this beautiful work, then go watch it again. During my recent barf fest I laid in bed and took in the wonderfulness of this period piece. It was so incredibly sweet and honorable and well, it was just perfect. Please put it on your must watch list today, this instant.

That’s it for now, I really need to get my butt moving today and catch up on laundry and educate that very cute 1st grader of mine.
