Gift Idea


Image result for journal book


I have friend who is moving away in few weeks. She is someone that comes to the library where I work. There have been many that have come and gone. Some have gone further to Heaven above.

I had this thought that I would write a little something in the beginning of her journal some personal effect of things we might have shared from time to time.  But instead of using up her space, I  decided to insert it in the front of the book. But then I received an inspiration, this idea popped into my head – I am going to  place some of my favorite quotes amongst her pages so that when she reaches that page she will have a neat little quote to give her inspiration or or help her along her journey..

I hope this prompts someone to do the same thing. It could be a college student, or dear friend. either way I think it was neat idea. to send someone along their way….

I guess I was wrong. We received a foot of snow. The eerie thing was the day before it was 60 degrees with the sun on your back. This picture was taken with my cell phone.



Three Little Words: A Memoir by Ashley Rhodes Courter

Three Little WordsThree Little Words was left at a recent Rest Area on I-80 in Illinois. I decided to read this book. I could not put it down. Read it in to the wee hours of the night.

I was astonished at the foster care homes, the court systems. How many children have suffered from  false pretenses. Not believing in children reports. But this story has a good ending and this young girl rose above her situations as she had adoptive parents that  loved her and had faith in her. She developed a talent to help others with their hardships and change foster care laws in Florida. A Must Read…
