TV Trip: A Katie Brown Christmas

WAFFLES:  Listen, Boss. Friendship isn't about who you've known the longest. It's all about the friend who comes and stands by your side in bad times. 

KATIE:  You mean as opposed to the friend who comes and stands behind you to sniff your–

WAFFLES:  Awww, Boss. You called me friend.

Christmas Memories
One of Glogirly's most cherished memories from growing up was the Charlie Brown Christmas TV special. Christmas just wasn't Christmas without it. She and her mom would watch it together, sometimes while baking spritz cookies or making marshmallow popcorn balls. Her mom LOVED watching Snoopy dance. She'd giggle year after year, never once getting tired of it.

She also loved Linus. As a little girl, Glogirly thought Linus was kind of boring... with his long monologues and all. It wasn't until she grew up and lost her mom that she came to know Linus and his wisdom. He just had a way of understanding the world around him, finding meaning and joy in every little snowflake of life. 

Even the ever-pessimistic Charlie Brown saw his glass half full thanks to Linus. The little tree that no one wanted... he saw something special in it. Glogirly thinks there's a little tree like that in all of us from time to time. It just needs is just a little love.
