"Funny the way life's trials and tribulations can make you laugh out loud when they're happening to Becky Povich. In her memoir, From Pigtails to Chin Hairs, Becky recalls a life's journey not always funny, to be sure, but told always with a wry bemusement that charms and delights. A wonderfully engaging story of the heroine next door."

* RECENT REVIEW FROM ROBERT BRAULT (Author of "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." ....among thousands of others)

"If you wish to step back in time and enjoy memories of the period, this book is what you need. Take your time with it, though, because you don't want to read it fast. Each paragraph is a deja vu, a throwback to a simpler time. Povich captures smells, experiences, innovations, and the way parenting used to be. Food, travel, playing outside till dinner. There's so much rich material here you can't digest it at once. Enjoyable read."

* RECENT REVIEW FROM C. HOPE CLARK (Author of the Carolina Slade Mystery Series, and editor of Funds for Writers)

** It's a Grateful Friday **

♪♫   Just a quick note to mention I've changed my Play List again. If you normally hit your mute button the second you arrive here.....I totally understand! I can't really read and/or write with music playing, either. I like to listen to it as background music as I do filing, de-cluttering, etc.   ♪♫
So, today I'm playing what I call Beautiful Music. You'll hear Vivaldi, Susan Boyle, Beethoven, Michael Buble, and Charlotte Church....just to name a few! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.....but if not, go right ahead and hit that old mute button!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wasn't feeling very grateful a couple of hours ago, yeah....ME! Can you believe that?! Every now and then, the old "woe is me" comes to visit and it takes me awhile to drop-kick it back out into the atmosphere. Ooops, look out! I hope I managed to send it to the middle of nowhere, where it won't hit anyone!

We all have mini incidents & inconveniences that disrupt our lives. And there's those major issues.....illnesses, accidents, family quarrels, financial problems, and loss of loved ones due to divorce or death. So, occassionally I have to remind myself that no matter what I may be going through at the moment, it is so minor compared to what millions of other people have to deal with....maybe on a daily basis.

Therefore, I've changed my attitude and I'm truly experiencing a "Grateful Friday"! I wish one for you, too!

“When we are grateful for the good we already have, we attract more good into our life. On the other hand, when we are ungrateful, we tend to shut ourselves off from the good we might otherwise experience.” - Margaret Stortz
