finished...

so one of my goals/resoultions for 2009 was to read atleast 12 books... 1 book a month


at first i wasn't sure why choose this as my first reading for the year or why i bought it besides it being like a dollar at mardel's. (i tell you - i love good deals wherever i can find them!)


but so glad i did... it made me smile, cry, learn that my life isn't so bad after all & challenged me to be better at being a mother, a friend, wife, church goer.

the whole book is just little 3 or 4 page story of life lessons she has learned about family, friends, relationships, having a baby, losing a job, college journeys, vacations & many, many more.

she puts her lessons & stories into such simple & easy to relate to illustrations that really get your attention & make you think.

i HIGHLY recommend this book to be added to your reading list... if you have one!

I have seen this book on a few different sites and you can actually download some of the chapters on her website... I think I am going to go out and buy the book.

I look forward to hearing what other books you read this year, too.

What a great goal! I wish I was more of a book reader and not so much of a magazine reader.

Did you change the size of your font or are my eyes getting bad?!?

ah, I may have to check this book out. I love reading.

Oh and to reply to your comment, I already have a car. My parents suprised me with a 1997 BMW for my 16th birthday (over a year ago). So I am really excited to get to drive it by myself.
