Book Sharing Monday ~ The Lump of Coal

"The Lump of Coal" by Lemony Snicket is a great and fun little holiday story! We loved it! I have to share with you a couple of is how it starts:

"Miracles are like pimples, because once you start looking for them you find more than you ever dreamed you'd see, and this holiday story features any number of miracles, depending on your point of view."

And, without giving the story away, I will share a bit of the ending, because it is just perfect in my point of view:

"It is a miracle if you can find true friends, and it is a miracle if you get to spend your days and evenings doing whatever it is you like to do, and the holiday season - like all the other seasons - is a good time not only to tell stories of miracles, but to think about the miracles in your own life, and to be grateful for them, and that's the end of this particular story."
