I was very lucky last week to spend time with my family. I went home for a long overdue visit and spent some quality time with friends and family. I got to clear my head and get back on track, and in the evening I got to catch up on some reading.
I normally don't recommend books to read. Mostly because I don't read great works of literature. I read what most people call fluff or light reading. But every now and then I come across a book, that moves me.
This last week I read Jane Green's, Promises to Keep. This book really hit home. I related with the central character, Callie. We are both mom's to young children, and have husbands that spend an enormous amount of time with their careers. She has a couple of super close friends, and has a wonderful relationship with her family. Then some unforeseen things happen and the relationships are tested and their strength embraced. Upon finishing the book, I was in tears, and sat reflecting on my own life. I once again reaffirmed my blessings.
Go ahead and give this one a try. If you are a fast reader you can have it done in a couple of nights.
