Everybody needs a guardian angel, particularly during the holidays. Depending where you are in life, the holidays can be the best, or the worst, of times. For me, they’re wonderful. I love decorating our house, baking things with my son, the extra time my husband has for relaxing around the house and being silly. We like to drive through neighborhoods and see the lights; I love holiday music (and singing it enthusiastically, much to the chagrin of my husband and son), and the way folks smile and speak when you’re out and about. My boys are my guardian angel, and I know that if I’m feeling a little blue, missing family and friends who are far away or passed on, I can grab a quick hug and recharge.

I found an article on 20 dependable holiday stress busters with some pretty good, practical advice. Things like slow down, don’t try to be everywhere at once, let family and friends help out, and the best of all: “hang on to hope.”

GA_LGI hope you’ll check out my Guardian Angel, released by Evernight Publishing in 2011. Here’s the blurb:

Hot shot graphic novelist Sasha Mitchell is learning how to adjust to life as an underground hero with one of the hottest video games on the market. Her newfound wealth is no replacement for her brother’s recent passing, though, and certainly no balm to Doctor David Ellington, who’s adjusting to life without the dominating wealth of his powerful father.

And even though this senator’s son is far more interested in making his mark in the community through the clinic where he volunteers, he still has to overcome decades of enforced emotional barrenness to let Sasha’s powerful character reignite his passion.

  1. My friend Sarah is like a sister to me. We’ve never met but have been friends for almost three years now. She’s been my rock and strength when I’ve needed it.

    1. Thanks for sharing, Kim. And thanks for searching for new authors. I read so quickly that I out-read my favorites all the time, so in trying to keep my mind fed, I’ve discovered great new authors!

  2. My Guardian Angel during the holidays is my infant daughter, Charlotte, who passed away 5 1/2 years ago. I know she’s always with us every year, making sure the holidays are full of love and happiness 🙂 Thank you for such an awesome hop! 🙂

  3. Who is my guardian angel? My ex’s family who took me in when I needed a place to stay.

  4. Thanks for the stress busters! I think part of my holiday stress is because it’s wonderful–I’m always trying to top or at least be as great as last year. So I’m really making an effort to slow down and take some me time with a cup of tea, a good book and my cat. Who I think is my holiday guardian angel, as he’ll force me to take a break by flopping down in the middle of the present wrapping or whatever and refusing to budge until he gets his ears scratched.

    1. I like how your cat thinks! And wrapping presents is one of my all-time favorite activities. When I was a kid, my mom used to put my presents in boxes amd I wrapped them all–never looked. 🙂

  5. I love singing Christmas carols and my husband often wishes I didn’t! The dogs don’t mind though! Thanks for being part of the blog hop!
