One More…Pleeeeease



I was about to walk out the door today and I hear, “can I have a hug?” I call back, “I just hugged you goodbye, remember?” (She hates when I forget.) “One more…pleeeeease?” I come back in and when I turn the corner she’s all smiles and she squeezed me so tight. I made her morning with a hug and she made mine with her smile and her love for me. I really needed it today. Sometimes I forget that her whole day (in her mind) is toys and snacks and me. I love her so much. From now on, I’ll try to always listen for when she wants seconds. 🙂


Book Review: The Legend of the Candy Cane By Lori Walburg

I love this book!! I loved that this book connected the story of the candy cane to the story of Jesus! I have an 11 and 7 year old, and they were both interested in reading this book. My daughter said “We have to make this a Christmas tradition every year, mom!”

I love that this book is written in a way that captures the attention of individuals of all ages. It is a great story with a wonderful message.

*I received this book from Book Sneeze in exchange for my honest review.

“Ingredients for Success 10 Best Practices for Business and Life” by Joseph James Slawek

This book surprised me. I was expecting it to be a “do this for business success” kind of book, but it was really more than that. Slawek takes his own personal experiences and shows you examples of how you can do those things in your own life to be successful. I really loved the third chapter of the book Know, Develop, and Use Your Unique Abilities. I loved when Slawek told how he found the people and things that God had placed in his life to help him succeed, and then moved into how you can find these same things in your own life.

Overall, this was a good read. I felt that Slawek did a great job of making this book personable and relatable. This book is a good guidebook for anyone looking to find a way to interweave their faith with their business practices.
