"Don't Let me Go!" Book Give Away!
It's amazing how much you can
accomplish when you just do a little bit
everyday! (Please tell me this principle works with
exercise, too??? But that's besides the point!)
I've been reading several books at once-
sorta doing things the hard way, but it's working. Amazingly I'm
actually getting to the end of them, too :)
This book, "Don't let me Go" by David Pierce, has been an easy read.
The author tells about the true experiences of he and his teenager
daughter. He's funny, honest and shares some of his own childhood
and how he now sees it connected to his parenting abilities... and
what he does because of it and in spite of it.
He & his daughter hike mountains & run marathons as he attempts
to answer her unspoken question of, "I'm growing up. What are you
going to do about it?"
I'm one chapter shy of finishing it... but will do that this weekend.
The publisher's have given me an extra copy to give away...
maybe to YOU!
It's easy to read. Not super deep, but a nice way to prompt thought
and consideration about my own parenting choices and uses of time.
If you'd like this FREE copy, simply leave a comment that's finishes
"When I hear the phrase, 'growing up fast' I think of..."
I'll give the book away on Thursday morning, March 26th.
Happy FIRST day of SPRING!
(And, hopefully if everyone stays healthy,
we'll be heading out later to enjoy our annual "First Day of
Spring" ritual: "The buying of the yearly FLIP-FLOP!")
