You’ll Think of Me

    Brooklyn Myers has had more heartache than a person should have; and then her husband dies. A husband who left her and their child. She learns he has left them with a house and land, something that definitely surprises her. Brooklyn sees this as a second chance. Derek Johnson is not happy. Not only did Brooklyn steal his best friend from him but she is now also the owner of the land he has been planning and saving to buy. Can each of them let go of the past and give themselves another chance at friendship? Maybe even love?

I started reading the book but was unable to finish it. As hard as I tried I could not get myself into the story. The characters were difficult for me to connect with and the story felt dragging to me.

*I received this book free from Thomas Nelson and the Fiction Guild in exchange for my honest review. What I have expressed are my own thoughts and I have not been compensated financially in any way.*

Thankful For....


Good Evening, Friends.


As I get ready to sign off for the night I think back to my week and can’t help but to be thankful for warmth. Warmth from many things. A warm house on the cold winter days and nights. Warm blankets and yes, my dog and cat who keep me warm as well. The warmth from friends and family are a big one too. Knowing that they are near. Seeing my niece growing so quickly and watching her discover things. Knowing that she recognizes me and reaches out to me now definitely warms my heart. Seeing my refrigerator covered in pictures colored and drawn by my nephews and nieces always makes me smile and warms my day. It is one of the first things I see when I step into my house. Sometimes it is not physical warmth that we need. Sometimes it is not physical warmth that gets us through the day, but rather, those little things our friends, family, and pets (although I count pets as family) do for us.

I hope whatever kind of week you had, you had warmth.
