I’ve posted a review of a new book Thomas Nelson Publishers is releasing tomorrow; it’s called The Noticer. My review is on my Book Reviews page. There is a project going on in connection with this book, and I think it is worth mentioning separately.
Basically, we are all encouraged to let at least 5 people who are important in our lives know that we appreciate them. Pretty simple, and pretty important. In these difficult economic times, with the threat of war in the news almost daily, fears of natural calamities abounding, and the emotional isolation we’ve developed as a result of the decline of the extended family’s role in our society, there is a lot to feel bad about. Let’s all take a little time out of our busy lives to thank those who have made us who we are today, or who brightened our lives in some way.
Here’s a quick shoutout of “Thanks” to my family, especially my sisters Audrey and Alice, who’ve been there for me through the worst of times and the best of times. Also, my friends Cindy and Pat, who encourage me to be my best; my friend Mary, who motivates me to write regularly; my blogging friends–you know who you are–who read my blog and make me feel I’m not just talking to myself.
