Review:
I've been reading Readers Digest my whole life. That's not really an understatement either... as soon as I could comprehend pictures and holding books, I had copies of Reader's Digest in my hands. It blossomed to me reading "the funnies", which are the sections like, Laughter is the Best Medicine, or All In A Days Work. These stories pulled me through every stage of my life. Keeping me highly entertained.
Now Readers Digest comes out with this book, Treasury of Joy and Inspiration, and it is a gem I tell you. It walks you through every emotion, empathy, love, humor, sadness, compassion and patience, and leaves you feel good not bad. That's how a great book is born and this book is great!
One of my favorite stories is so touching, I literally blubbered like a fool. It was about a love that was so pure, it was the stuff fairy tales are made of. Only this was someones' real life. It is a story that will stick with me every time I look at my hubby. 
So I urge you, get a copy, or even enter to win my giveaway and try to win a copy. I think you will love all the stories inside, and might even find one that resonates through you.

  3. Life is full of them!
    My husband & I run a small ranch. One winter he was trying to charge the battery on the old tractor. He was parked beside the old pump house & would work, shut the lights off & go. Upon returning would be frustrated that the battery hadn't charged. We enjoyed a chuckle upon realizing that the light switch controlled the power to the outlet the cord to the battery charger was plugged into!

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
