Wrapping up the series with another wonderful author Piper Huguley. I describe her as the historical romance princess. LOL. I have never been drawn to historical romance until I read her work. Let’s see what the season means to her. Remember share & comment to be entered to win one of Piper’s books.
As I grow older, I have learned to appreciate family at Christmas. What comes to mind for me at the holiday is how Mary and Joseph marveled at the birth of the Baby Jesus. Even in the meekest of circumstances, they came together and enjoyed one another. So the lesson that I take from that long-ago Christmas is how God wants us to come together. So I make plans to enjoy my family as much as possible. After all in the Christmas story, the Wise Men and their presents came later. To me, that means for me that the gift giving is less important than the renewing of familial bonds.
With the loss of both my mother and grandmother over the past few years, I am resolved to make all of my Christmases be about the renewing the bonds of love in a family. There are many, many ways to create family as well. So, I also like to imagine the various ways people are, hopefully, enjoying one another’s company over the holiday. One of the most touching commercials I’ve seen this year is the one with the young boy who invites the elderly neighbor over to Christmas dinner. That little boy knew the true spirit of the holiday. I hope other people reach out and invite people into their lives. The bonds of connection matter a great deal and I think it may be one of the reason I write romance. Romance is the genre that is all about the creation off a family unit.
