Isn’t it incredible when a friend dreams big?
When they reach for the stars and the moon and a few random galaxies…
….and something amazing shows up?
That’s how I feel about this book.
It made me laugh and sigh and think and it inspired me and filled my heart and made me the proudest of the proud.
I can’t help it.
You see….I’m kind of its aunt….
….because its authors are my long-long sisters.
I met Heather and Vanessa long ago in a land far away when we all started blogging and our hair was a lot bigger.
We bonded immediately over red lipstick and shiny, blingy flip flops.
So when they told me they were writing a book I literally screamed for joy and told them that this was the book they were born to create.
And I was right.
There are 223 pages of joy.
Enough for every season.
Pages where they share their faith and their hearts and their struggles and their triumphs….
….and their blackberry pie.
And their scrabble art work.
And their DIY ruler tray.
And their beautiful spring bouquet in a can.
And their wood slice plant markers.
To quote my niece, the book, she says….
“You are cordially invited to each day, week and season of life.”
And that’s what I took away from the book. That’s the message that it left me with. And I needed to hear it. There are days when I feel like freight trains downtown. I’m rushing and huffing and puffing and running through life at break neck speed. I need a little more slowing down.
Thanks for the reminder, sisters.
I always knew you were the smart ones in the family. 🙂
