Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Merry Christmas!

I got the alert on my phone at work that it was delivered. I couldn't wait to get home. There it was by the door. I brought it in and put the box on the counter.

Then I texted my family: Merry Xmas! I'm opening my present now!

My husband and daughter gave me the money for an Apple Watch for Christmas, and of course, I had to wait for Christmas to come in April. It's beautiful. I couldn't be more pleased with it. It's the first time I ever had a watch that actually fit my small wrist. It's not heavy – I hardly even know it's there until I feel a small pulse that tells me I have a notification. If it's junk email, it's easy to touch and trash it on the spot. If it's a text, it's easy to send a pre-made response or just talk into the microphone and hit send. Very efficient, which is how I like my life to be.

I had so much fun texting the kids and calling my husband on it all evening long. My husband asked me if it could cook. I responded:

Having your phone on your wrist may not be a big thing to everyone else, but to me it is. Not having to have my phone out at work or on a table in a restaurant is great. Not having to constantly take it out of my wallet in the car or in a store, especially with packages in my hand, is the best.

And so, as another day goes by, it's the small things that make my days go better that keeps my heart beating, and …I have written.
