Okay, “hate” may be too strong a word. Let me just say that this year, I’m doing a lot of my Christmas shopping online. I was not among the earlybird crowds who hit the stores during the pre-dawn hours on Black Friday. I received an invitation to join some diehard family members who were venturing to Kohl’s at dark o’clock, but I declined. Heck, I have a two-month-old. I will not be getting up at 4 A.M. on any day that I don’t absolutely HAVE to, thank you very much.
If you, like me, are in the midst of your online Christmas shopping, here’s a little suggestion: Mary and Me makes a great gift for the women in your life. In the interest of full disclosure, yes, I am the author. As such, I can honestly say that I know the book intimately, and can tell you that it’s full of intriguing reflections from women of all ages who share their thoughts and feelings about Mary. If you already love Mary, the book will give you even more reasons to do so. If you are indifferent to/confused by/wary of Mary, this book will introduce you to women who understand those feelings, and who have come to see Mary in a new, more personal light.
