Hi everyone! Sorry I have been MIA this week. We successfully surprised my mom with a visit for her birthday! It was so fun!
Oh it was such a wonderful week with my parents. There is just something about the home I grew up in. It makes me feel safe, secure, and so happy.
I love seeing my parents as grandparents. They love their children but they really love their grandchildren. And they spoil us both, as it should be.
I just soaked up my time at home this week so I took a little spontaneous blogging hiatus. But I’m actually all caught up on reviews right now, which is kind of shocking!
But I am still reading and hope to post a few more reviews this month. 🙂
Right now, I’m in the middle of The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald. I am most excited about this one. And I already cannot recommend this novel highly enough to my fellow book lovers. This book beautifully expresses the power of books, the way books can change lives, and the way they connect us. I want to open a bookshop. And read all day everyday. And have a bookish pen pal (okay, I kind of do because I have all of you 🙂 ) I basically love this novel thus far.
And I’m moving right along in War and Peace. I’m suddenly able to count down the number of books left in the novel. And that is crazy! Finding myself pulled into the plot and enjoying Tolstoy’s language and philosophy right now.
Isn’t it interesting that life doesn’t always go as planned, but it turns out better than we expect? It’s been a hard several months at our house. But I am grateful tonight for God and for His timing and for His love.
