My newest pal, Becky M. has also turned
me on to a new author by the name of Andy Andrews.
As I said, she and I are like kindred souls, loving the
same type of things. She just knew I would appreciate these books.
She and her "Pappa" were lucky enough to go and hear the author speak
and bought me signed copies of two of his books.
It was my excuse to invite myself to her home,
to get my books.
Now, I have about 12 books waiting to be read
as well as about three that I am reading at the same time.
When bringing these books home though I want to begin to
read them right away, they have been calling to me.
They are books that you just cannot read through fast
as there are too many lessons to be learned as you read.
is the one I have began and already, although on only page 15
there are things I want to underline all over the pages.
I just can't write on a collection book but I want to!
"NOW THEN, YOU ARE HAVING MARITIAL PROBLEMS.
'HOW COULD YOU POSSIBLE KNOW THAT?
'EVERYONE KNOWS IT."
...THE HANSONS LOOKED STRICKEN.
JONES SMILED GENTLY.
"BECAUSE YOU ARE MARRIED."
"WHEN YOU ARE MARRIED, THOSE ARE THE PROBLEMS
NEITHER JAN NOR BARRY KNEW WHAT TO SAY.
..."YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT ALL PEOPLE-
ALL LIVES-ARE EITHER IN A CRISIS,
COMING OUT OF A CRISIS, OR HEADED FOR
MARRIAGE IS AN EXTENSION...
AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW THINGS ARE
NOT AS BAD AS THEY SEEM"
These words are those of THE NOTICER who is the main
character in this awesome book.
Isn't that paragraph so true?
It hit me like a "ton of bricke" because we are all in this
life one of those three things,
in, coming out or heading into a crisis.
A thought provoking book having me think hard
about things in my own life.
These books are just another way that Becky M.
and I are bound to be friends for a very long time.
Looking for a good read?
THE NOTICER BY ANDY ANDREWS
Thanks again, dear Becky and "Pappa"
