“The most precious Christmas gift”

From Carla, peace1 on Twitter:

“John was hospitalized & forced to give his dog to the Rome Humane Society. When RN Jennifer heard about it, she went there & adopted John’s dog, so that she could bring him to visit while he completed his rehabilitation. This kindness is the most precious Christmas gift.”

The true meaning of Christmas indeed.

Love this quote from Ryan Reynolds!

From a recent article in Vanity Fair:

Ryan Reynolds says there’s no big secret behind the success of his and Blake Lively’s marriage, just a really solid foundation of friendship.

The actor revealed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight published on Monday that when it comes to his relationship with his wife . . . “Falling in love is great, but do you like each other? That’s kinda the question you gotta ask yourself, you know, going into it. We’ve always liked each other. We grow together. We learn from each other. So yeah, I’m lucky to have a buddy in that.”

Sounds pretty darn romantic to me.

“Rules for happiness”

While writing The Redemption of Philip Thane, I came across a quote which I found so beautiful and inspiring — and also so very much at the heart of the story — that ultimately it found its way into the book:

It acts as a kind of beacon for my hero, lighting his way out of darkness . . .

It showed up unexpectedly in a rather inhospitable part of our backyard. The life force at work!
