Description from book;

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People will encourage, inspire, and support you through all types of difficult situations, whether financial, health-related, family or personal issues. Read 101 personal stories from real people about meeting their challenges:
* downsizing and enjoying a simpler life
* finding the silver lining in layoffs and other economic troubles
* living with illness and disability
* surviving natural disasters
* grief and healing
* the value of family and friends
* and 10 bonus stories about using faith to pull through


My take on the book selection;
I was utterly captivated from the first story. There were so many I could connect with, and in so many different situations. I had an array of emotions, but mostly compassion. The stories I couldn't connect to, I felt I learned from. Example; I love the term "staycation." When low on funds, and needing a break, tour things in your city, such as National parks, or a museum. You'd be surprised how uplifting it can make you, and you don't have to leave home. Where most vacations are costly, and far from home. I recommend you read the book, you may be as moved as I am.

  1. My husband and I have had a couple "staycations" but we never thought to call them that at the time. My co-worker did recently though and it sounded so fun, lol! I love the Chicken Soup for the Soul Books!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
