A Perfect Start to My Day

This morning I opened my email to find this note:

Dear Miss Goodwin,


My name is Peter and I am in the 3rd grade. My mother just bought an autographed copy of "The Christmas Village", because we read it in class. I couldn't stop reading it ! It was just hard to put down. Everyone in my family wants to read it. I think you should write Part Two ! I also think you should win an award for it. Thanks for writing a great book.

From Pete (age 9).

Not much could take the smile off my face this morning. Hope your day starts off well too (and stays that way!)
