Tearjerker Book

I just finished crying my way through this book, Same kind of different as me.  It was an inspiring true story and  I am glad I took the time to read it.   Some people at church told me about it.  I have been trying to read literature that uplifts and teaches me something valuable.   This book is going on my favorites list!  And as I was searching for the images on google I discovered that there is a movie in the making!   Of course, the movie is NEVER as good as the book, but I will still look forward to it. 

So, now the real reason of why I haven’t blogged, I have been reading!  And driving all over the place. 

We watched Secondhand Lions again.  Love that movie!  I love the part where they are hoeing in the garden and discover all the seeds they planted are corn,  and they got ripped off by the door- to-door salesmen.  And then when they sit down to eat that corn, many months later, they look like they are in heaven , chowing down.  Good stuff! 

Family wise,  more colds,  more basketball,  root canals, flat tires, lego camp,  snow, but everything is pretty good!

    I read that book this summer…on a plane ride home from Arkansas. It was very good. My husband and I lived in Fort Worth for 4 years while he was in seminary…it was fun to recognize the landmarks/places that they mention in the book. I cried my eyes out reading it though b/c the cancer part hit so close to all I was dealing with in regard to my dad.

    I’m glad you enjoyed it!

    Have a great weekend.
