I am loved and am grateful to be reminded of that daily.

I have read the author's Christmas Jar book and really enjoyed it. This is a story of little Penny who gets to choose how to use the Christmas Jar money and oroginally wanting to hold a party, decides to help a cute grandpa she is friends with. Very touching story of how a little girl can make a difference.
