B O O K B L U R B S:

"This beautifully written memoir is funny, poignant, and life-affirming. Becky Povich is an American treasure."
Michael Lee West, bestselling author of
Crazy Ladies, Mad Girls in Love, Gone With a Handsomer Man, and more.

"Becky Povich has a light and whimsical way with words, and a knack for making the everyday seem a bit more special."
Philip Gulley, bestselling author of Porch Talk Series, Harmony Series, I Love You Miss Huddleston, and more.

"Becky Povich’s memoir From Pigtails to Chin Hairs is a series of finely drawn vignettes that does everything a good memoir should do—makes you laugh, makes you cry, makes you want to sit down and have a cup of coffee with the author." Judith Ryan Hendricks, bestselling author of the Bread Alone series, Isabel’s Daughter, and The Laws of Harmony.

"Reading about life’s tender and ridiculous lessons in From Pigtails to Chin Hairs brought my own life into sharper focus. Becky Povich turns low points, detours, and crowbars into stories that make me appreciate my own pigtail days, as well as the wisdom that comes long after." Susan Bono, Editor and Publisher of Tiny Lights: A Journal of Personal Narrative.

"Charming." A.E. Hotchner, commenting on the chapter "Doris Day, A.E. Hotchner, and Me"

** 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
