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.
