This month's round-up of comments and replies from my March blog posts begins with one of my favorite things about the blogging community - receiving suggestions for places to visit. Mary-Lou commented on my Hello March post that if I ever get the chance to visit Newfoundland (& Labrador) - it is one of most beautiful provinces. Gros Morne National Park is a national treasure.
Sandra, Karen, Mary-Lou, and Cheri would like to a visit a flea market like the one I shared in my Memorandum Monday - Canton Trade Days post. Those trade days happen the weekend before the first Monday of every month - if any of you are ever in the Dallas area, let's meet up there!
After sharing some book reviews, I was glad to learn that (in Better Than Before terminology) Missus Wookie is also an Upholder. Alexa says she's probably a Questioner and Cheri is a died-in-the-wool Obliger. There were also several book recommendations: Karen said: When Breath Becomes Air---a moving memoir by a neurosurgeon who was
diagnosed with stage 4 cancer at 36, and passed away a little over a
year later. Now I'm reading My Brilliant Friend. It's a perfect book for
vacation---engaging story, interesting characters, set in Naples,
Italy. It's long, and it's just the first of a four book series which
I'm sure I'll want to read as well. Mary-Lou said: I have just finished The Nightingale, which I really enjoyed. Beverly said: I just finished reading Driving the Birds, a disturbing book but one I recommend.
After sharing about Hannah's Faith, I asked: Who has influenced you and helped you become the person you are today? Beverly said: Of course my parents but also my grandmother and great aunt influenced my faith. Cheri said: My Mom (the one that raised me) was the single biggest influence on the person I am today. Juliann said:
My mom and dad.
When I shared a photo of some altered composition books, I learned from Sian that We don't have composition books like yours, so when we were in Florida we bought a few. It's always interesting to learn which items are available (or not) around the globe!
When I shared my February gratitude pages, Becky said: I am grateful in February
for my mum coming successfully through surgery and for finding a
physician who can help me with my migraines. Sian
said: For finally feeling better and not needing any more antibiotics for sinus problems. Karen
I always have a lot to be grateful for, but one thing for sure was the much milder weather than we had last February!
As always, I am grateful for each of you who stop by regularly and leave such wonderful comments to continue the conversation!
