MYSELF AND BARNES AND NOBLE
Myself and Barnes and Noble,
a good combination and at the same time,
not a good one.
I loose time when I enter there.
Like a library, there is no better place I love than
to be surrounded by books, books, books
and other people who love books.
I swear, I went in there for one simple gift card
and the next time I looked at the time,
3 hours had passed!
My favorite place to hang is those gem of books
I find on the bargain shelves.
Monday I come across this most awesome little book,
LIVE AND LEARN AND PASS IT ON
by: Jackson Brown
I don't know if you can actually call this a book
by one author as what he did was began
to ask people of all ages the question,
What have you learned so far in life?
He has compiled all the answers in this sweet little book,
no names follow their answers, only their age.
Amazing how the age of the person answering the
question becomes as important as the actual answer.
I am in love, swooning over the whole entire book.
It costed only 6 dollars and think I have to buy
a few more copies for gifts.
As for mine, it is highlighted all over,
ear tabbed, marked,
In the next few posts, want to share some of these wonderful
I'VE LEARNED THAT REGARDLESS OF YOUR
RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR PARENTS, YOU
WILL MISS THEM TERRIBLY AFTER THEY ARE GONE
I'VE LEARNED THAT IF YOUR CHILDREN FEEL
SAFE, WANTED AND LOVED, YOU ARE
A SUCCESSFUL PARENT.
I'VE LEARNED THAT YOU CAN'T HIDE
A PIECE OF BROCCOLI IN A GLASS OF MILK
See what I mean? How the ages become so important
in the sentence?
More later as I now go get ready to have a school lunch with
my favorite little name sake...
