Moms Know Best When It Comes to Getting Everyone Together

Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul, and today we’re talking about the holidays, and how moms know best when it comes to getting everyone together.

I know it’s very tough in my own family, with four grown children and multiple parents, especially after divorces. So today I’m going to share two stories that I love from our new book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Magic of Christmas about a couple of clever moms who figured out how to get all the kids together for the holidays.
