A B C….

When I was small growing up almost every child had an ABC book. I remember mine as a small brown cover book which had the letters of the alphabet written in both common and capital letter. I used to feel so proud as a three-year-old being able to identify letters. Being able to recite the alphabet was great but knowing the letters was even better…Oh the good old days!

Reading Challenge

My reading challenge for 2019 is off to a great start. I started with THE FORGOTTEN HOURS by Katrin Schumann and completed it in three days. I promised to give you a review and here is a brief one.

I gave this book a three star because it did not deliver as I expected it to. The flow of the story was a bit slow. I kept waiting for that exciting moment that never came. The overall theme of the story is clear and relevant in today’s world were so many women have to deal with sexual assaults. The flow would have been better without the use both past and present tense to get the ideas across. The characters were also not well developed, however it was an interesting read.

In my next post I will tell you the current book I am reading.

Reading Challenge

Years ago when I was much younger reading was my favorite hobby. However I have found myself reading less and less. This year I plan step up on my reading. My goal is to read at least 12 books this year. I consider one book a month an attainable goal considering that there was a time when I was reading a book a day or every two days.

My first book which I already started reading is THE FORGOTTEN HOURS by Katrin Schumann. I don’t know much about this author but I will give you my feedback on the book when I am through.

Live Life

What do you do when your plans go asunder?
What do you do when they all come to naught?
you pick up the pieces, you brush off the dust,
You stop for a moment and cry if you must,
You smile through the tear drops and try to be brave,
Then you move on forward to battle the next wave.

Life is sometimes a battlefield where,
Only the toughest survive.
Life comes with problems we all must try to overcome,
Don’t dwell too much on the problems,
Lest you forget how to have fun.

Everyday presents an opportunity for you to begin
To write a new chapter in your book of life,
Cherish every moment, take the bitter with the sweet,
Let your book be bright and colorful,
Take the time to make it great.
When you grow old cherish those moments,
And remember that when your chapter
In this book of life is over,
For someone else it just begins.
