Books and Journals

As Deborah said while commenting on Diane's great bee quilt, why don't we have a book group on AQR? In that spirit, I bring you some geeky library humor. I read all the time anyway, goes with being a library geek, so if someone wants to read and discuss a book, I'm game. I don't want to choose, though.

On a more serious note, I was very touched by Pamdora's (April 6) journal of daily blessing, and all I can say is that it is a very powerful tool. Losing a dear loved one makes it hard to give thanks, and my heart goes out to those of you who are struggling with this. Physical illness, mental depression, and spiritual darkness ..... there are times when saying "thank you, I woke up today" is hard. I have, over the years, been in those places too. Everyone has difficult places in their lives, even those attractive, successful , "perfect life" people. Look at Martha.

I am a great believer in the journal of blessings and the prayer of gratitude, especially when it's the last thing you want to do. So, thank you Pamdora. Oh, and if you are thinking of making
yourself a fancy journal to write those thoughts in, check out Cheryl's books (April 7.)
