Holiday spirit???

Okay, really, I think I'm a pretty generous person. I really DO like doing things for other people. But then something will happen to you and you wonder why bother??? The night before Christmas eve, someone broke into our van and stole all of my daughter's Christmas presents. SERIOUSLY???? They were wrapped in Dora paper, for crying out loud, it's not like they couldn't tell they were for a little girl!!

My faith in humanity has been tested on this one. Don't get me wrong, I know it was just one or two people, I know it's not everyone. But the fact that it CAN happen...wow...amazes me. I must be naive.

This book changed my life

One of my dearest friends gave me this book for Christmas and I instantly fell in love with it. The Shack by William P. Young is the story of a man who had to deal with the worst possible heartache. No family should have to go through it. But he spent a weekend with God and found a way to forgive. Forgiveness is the main theme, but there are so many more. It will truly make you rethink some of the things you believe.

Wednesday's Book Recommendation

Sorry I've been gone so long, folks. We've all been pukey sick! First hubby had the flu, then myself and Nova at the same time. Great way to spend the holidays!

This week's book recommendation is She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb. It's an oldie but goody! I first read it in college when it came out and fell in love with Deloris, the main character. Any woman can relate to SOMETHING she goes through. Several times, I found myself looking at the author's picture to make sure it was really written by a man!
