Teri Tradition #4 - The blessing of sharing a wonderful Christmas read with my sister, and best friend Tami, that's right I REALLY have three besties! Tami and I have our T & T Book Club and each year we manage to pick the perfect little Christmas book to read! This year it was my turn to pick and I ordered us each a copy of "The Great Christmas Bowl", by Susan May Warren. This was a make you laugh and make you cry kinda book. Tami and I both talk about getting a Kindle - but just can't give up the beautiful cover pages on a good ole' book! Christmas books seem to be the most beautiful to me!
About the book . . .
Marianne Wallace is focused on two things this holiday season: planning the greatest family Christmas ever and cheering on her youngest son's team in their bid for the state championship. Disaster strikes when the team loses their mascot--the Trout. Is it going too far to ask her to don the costume? So what if her husband has also volunteered her to organize the church Christmas tea. When football playoffs start ramping up, the Christmas tea starts falling apart. Then, one by one her children tell her they can't come home for Christmas. As life starts to unravel, will Marianne remember the true meaning of the holidays?
