/24-7PressRelease/ - RIDGELAND, SC, November 19, 2005 - The holiday season is hectic for everyone. Travel plans need to be arranged, cookies need to be baked, halls need to be decked, menus need to be prepared, greeting cards need to be written, and there's only six weeks left to find all the right gifts. With all this hustle and bustle, forgetting to spend time with family (the most important part of the holidays) becomes as easy as unwrapping presents.
Adults often focus their energy on planning a perfect holiday party or finding the perfect gift to make the children in their lives happy. But regardless of what's on their list, kids really want and need to spend quality time with the adults they love—their parents, grandparents, etc. In his collection of essays, Snapshots of Heaven: 40 Funny, Profound, Real-Life Stories About Children (Cameo Publications, $14.95, ISBN 0-9797965-0-2), father and author Michael Wells encourages adults to reconnect with their children by describing the small, simple events that make family life so special.
"The children in our lives give us more than we will ever know. Every antic, every question, every conversation carries the power to make us realize what is truly important in life," said Wells. By illustrating the author's experiences, the stories in Snapshots of Heaven allow adults to see and understand how precious the moments they spend with their children truly are.
According to Wells, parents need to take time every day, especially around the holidays, to spend time cherishing their children. They can read holiday stories, put up decorations, or wrap gifts—anything one-on-one. Parents can even use these opportunities to create traditions that last through their children's lives. Because as kids grow up, they won't remember how nicely their presents were wrapped, or even the presents themselves; they'll remember the time they spent with the important adults in their lives.
Michael Wells is an author, speaker, entrepreneur, husband, and father of two. The stories in Snapshots of Heaven are the stuff of his own experiences as a father. An inspiring speaker, his driving ambition is to encourage and motivate adults everywhere to tell their stories of the little ones who "show them heaven before their time."
