Well, I am the kind of person that instead of completely breaking down in a heap and crying “woe is me” (ok, I may have lost it for about 5 or 10 minutes) I pick myself up and figure out the solution. Now I am someone that has a lot to prepare for here at home and I really do not have time to run out to the crowded malls. So, I figured since I was going to be last minutes gifts and deals online…

    The Christmas Truce

    The Christmas Truce is a touching story about how even enemies can put down their arms and share peace together, even if just for a short time. This is the perfect story for Christmas.

This year, my daughter and grandson are in North Carolina so my mind has been working overtime to make this the best Christmas ever. My grandson, Brandon, is going to be 8 in December.

Sometimes I would have to read it more than once (ok, sometimes 3…
