Gift from the Sea

On Monday night my bookclub met at the local Barnes & Noble and discussed Gifts from the Sea by Anne Murrow Lindbergh. What a wonderful and inspirational book! This book was written over 50 years ago and everything in this book still holds true for todays busy world. You really can't read this book quickly, this book is to be savored and reflected on. If you get a chance to read this book, you should! Everyone have a great day!

I read this book a couple of years ago and it really changed my perspective on some things about life. I highly recommend it, too!

I really enjoy that book. Have had copies of it for years, and I tend to find extras so I can give them away.

So glad you are enjoying it too! I really got some good insights from it for my own life.

I have heard of this before and think I have read sections out of it for school but a re-read would be nice.

BTW...have you been over to the Apron Goddesses today? hint. hint.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
