Review:
As you know, I love the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. They are usually my reading pick-me-up when I feel low or am in a slump. This time I picked it up because it has the word "magic" in the title and it's one word of my keyword challenge. So even with an another motive, it was still an inspiring and sometimes tear-jerking read.
Being a daughter, I could definitely relate to some of the stories. It's tough being a daughter.
But being a mother of a daughter I get too. I have a 15 year old daughter. It's tough being the mom as well, and frankly, couldn't tell you which is harder for what it is.
What I can tell you is being a mom is a thankless job. When you reach a certain age and have children of your own, you realize all that your mom did for you and the sacrifices made, and you learn to be a better daughter and mom from that. I learned this way and am sure my daughter will too.
This book is filled with experiences from mothers, daughters and even grandmothers. Some make you laugh and others will make you cry. Just know you will connect with the stories even if you are a man. You have a mother or had one once, so it will hit home with you too.
Looking forward to my next Chicken Soup for the Soul book. 


5/5

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.
