Chicken Soup for The Soul: Count Your Blessings Review and Giveaway...

I got to review the book Chicken Soup for the Soul: Count Your Blessings! I love these uplifting books. It is so important to count our many blessings! This book is full of great thoughts and uplifting stories. I liked the stories about family and friends. I also like the quotes at the start of each chapter. Like the one that says: "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." ~ Robert Brault

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Count Your Blessings

101 Stories of Gratitude, Fortitude, and Silver Linings

This book continues Chicken Soup for the Soul’s focus on inspiration and hope in these difficult times. These inspirational stories remind us that each day holds something to be thankful for — whether it is having the sun shine or having food on the table. Power outages and storms, health scares and illnesses, job woes and financial insecurities, housing challenges and family worries test us all. But there is always a silver lining. The simple pleasures of family, home, health, and inexpensive good times are described.

These stories of optimism, faith, and
strength will make a great start to 2010!


Now here's the exciting part...

I get to give away 3 copies of this book!
