This past week I finished reading Unbroken . . . a book that is far more than a WWII narrative or even a survival story . . . but a book about redemption and restoration. A very inspiring book, though difficult to read in its brutal portions.
Our book and breakfast group will be wading through this book in November and December (Flapjacks restaurant, 1st & 3rd Wednesdays @ 6:15 a.m.) and all are welcome to attend (and eat!).
Reading this book made me realize that we are always facing choices of life and death each day: how we treat others, what we do, how we do it. Some of our choices lead to life. Other choices lead us to decay and death (though usually slowly).
I like to write about these themes, too, and recently had a couple of essays published that deal with thankfulness, gratitude, and the gifts of laughter. So I hope they can give some life to others.
I might even share them here . . . provided there's an audience who likes to chuckle.
