I love saying that. Think of what it means. We are celebrating the birth of Christ!!!! The one sent to save the world. How awesome is that. I want to wish everyone a blessed Christmas. If you are traveling, be safe.

Robin Caroll sent me a list of questions a couple of weeks ago that I didn’t have a chance to answer until now because of a book deadline. I was supposed to send them to lots of people. I decided to post them instead.
