A moms heart

A mothers heart knows no limits
If her children need her she will move heaven and earth for them

My child needs me, so after his late night call I booked a flight for this morning just so I could comfort him, and hug him.

Well, I will also be helping him pack everything into his car to move home.  Life throws you curves sometimes.

I don't like it when my babies hurt.

Making Toast (Book 10 of the 50 book challenge)

Making ToastMaking Toast by Roger Rosenblatt


I really enjoyed this book. It was actually written as an essay, but now printed as a book. It is real life. An accounting of the author's life when their physician daughter dies suddenly, and they make a decision to move in with their son in law and grandchildren to help out after her death. It was an easy and quick read. My heart broke with the family for the loss and sadness they feel but I also feel the strength they each show in their own ways.

Blackout

Black OutBlack Out by Lisa Unger
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This took a bit longer than I 'planned' but it had nothing to do with the quality of the book, but instead the fact that this book deals with a lot of dark material and runs on three separate 'tracks'. One is the main storyline, where Annie is a wife and mother with a past that she cannot remember completely. Next is the past, where, as Ophelia (her given name), she is deep in the middle of murder and deception. Finally, the present life which she is dealing with, and tries to come to terms with, all the tracks of her life, and how the people around her fit in.

I thought I knew how things would turn out, and then I was wrong, and just when the last piece of the puzzle is put into place, you realize the piece belongs to a different puzzle and it doesn't quite fit.

I really enjoyed this, despite the fact it took me longer to read it.
