My Blog Lyric Fire – Sunday Solace

I usually present a Book Binge selection on Sunday, but I needed to do something different today. This holiday season is feeling very different for me for a lot of reasons and none that I want to share here. But what I will share are some nice notions on this blessed Sunday. Sometimes when you’re not feeling your best, it’s good to think about comforting things. So here is my Sunday Solace list. Some are personal memories, others are events that I’ve witnessed or imagined. How about making your own list of things that soothe your mind?

Enjoy and have a wonderful day.
