Hello Again!

I hope all of you are doing well. I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth, we have just had a lot going on. All of us somehow caught the stomach bug and just as one started to get better, another person would get sick. Not fun, especially when we are supposed to be enjoying time with one another, going to church, Christmas shopping, baking cookies, etc.. Well, if you are reading this and you are healthily, please count your blessings, knock on wood and kiss your families! When I am sick it makes me remember that not everyone feels as health all of the time. I usually say a prayer for those who are feeling unhealthy and I ask to give them strength and a quick recovery. Sickness really does make you appreciate being healthy. When I need to remember that lesson, I always seem to get sick. :)
Being sick gave me the opportunity to read a few books that I have been putting off, actually a series of books. I was going to wait but as soon as I started one I couldn't put them down! I read the Twilight series! I know I am a late bloomer. My sisters have been trying to get me to read them since they came out. I love the books. I have heard the movies are not as good. What do you think? Have you read them? What was your favorite part? If you have not read them, why not?
Well, can wait to hear from all of you! I miss writing and I miss you!

I'm so glad you are on the mend. Yes, it is good to be thankful for good health. Thanks for the gentle reminder.
I enjoyed reading The Twilight Saga. I found the books very hard to put down whilst reading them, too.
I also enjoyed the movies. As most movies based on books tend to differ from the story line, there are parts to the Twilight movies that are different, too.
We like the way families are portrayed throughout the books and how Edward and Bella's relationship develops.

Glad you're feeling better! I read the Twilight series and LOVED the books. In fact I re-read each book just before each movie came out, so I've read the series twice! The movies were a little corny, but I still enjoyed them. I also read the Bree Tanner book that went along with the series, and The Host by Stephenie Meyer. Both good!

Glad you are feeling better. I too am sick I finally fell asleep at 9am this morning after a fitful night of coughing among other symptoms I shall not mention. I woke up at 10pm. Nice to get some rest. Head is still congested and the cough isn't as bad. I have kept myself entertain by reading also.

Hope all of you are able to stay well the the holidays.

Blessings and Happy Holidays
