I have been reading since about 9 am. Its now 11:50 with still 5 more hours of the Read A Thon to go. But with my sinus headache and the fact that the words are blurring on the page, I am going to take a nap! The alarm is set for 12:30 and hopefully, I will be able to open my eyes and read another book! It might be Dr. Suess but that counts!
I just finished reading The Sound of Sleighbells by Cindy Woodsmall and Loved IT! I didn't want to put it down, even when I drifted off to sleep while reading it. Luckily, Son woke me up to remind me that I needed to snore quieter and wasn't I supposed to be spending the day reading? HA!
I love reading about the Amish and I admire their ability to live their WAY. I know that I could not live without my laptop!
This book is about a woman who looses love and with the help of her family, finds her way back. Which is not unlike my life a while back. I was newly divorced and severely mentally beaten by my ex. I sold my house and moved into the apartment below my parents. With their love as well as others in the complex, I have been learning to love myself. With love of self, comes love of life and eventually (I hope!) the ability to share that love with a partner.
Thank you to all the cheerleaders who have stopped by the Nest! I love seeing the messages left to encourage me onward!
