Theresa Kennedy added a status update: Today I wish all my Good Reads pals and personal friends a very happy holiday season, AND a Merry Christmas! I'm not much for the holidays and eagerly look forward to it being over, but I might find a cafe that's open and drag my husband along for a cup of coffee and a slice of pumpkin pie. Have a great day and don't ever give up. Life can be wonderful and is generally what you make it. Cheers! :)
