    Cool What book(s) did you get for Christmas?

    I was lucky and got The Ikabog by JK Rowling.. https://www.theickabog.com/

    Ben found the book "The Princess Bride" by William Golding. It's one of my favourite movies that Ben and I watch together so it's even more special itms?

    So, what about you?
    Do a little of something that makes you happy every day!

    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
