Welcome to Free Books and Chat on this second Saturday of 2014.
The past week has been a difficult one as we seem to have lost a good friend.
Today though is about enjoying ourselves as we celebrate the present, so go ahead and enjoy the day as we pick up some free books to swell our ever expanding Kindles.
Let us chat to old friends and hopefully find some new friends to join our community.
This community abounds with friends who pick each other up as we falter and/or fall....and if they can't pick us up, they lie down with us:)
Let us surround ourselves with happiness and be thankful for our blessings.
One of the blessings for which I am very grateful is to have found this forum and the awesome people who make it what it is.
╰♥╮CHEERS! . . .


Here's to a grand 2014:)

May the dreams you hold dearest be those which come true,

Steps To Happiness

Everybody Knows:

You can't be all things to all people.
You can't do all things at once.
You can't do all things equally well.
You can't do all things better than everyone else.
Your humanity is showing just like everyone else's.


You have to find out who you are, and be that.
You have to decide what comes first, and do that.
You have to discover your strengths, and use them.
You have to learn not to compete with others,
Because no one else is in the contest of *being you*.


You will have learned to accept your own uniqueness.
You will have learned to set priorities and make decisions.
You will have learned to live with your limitations.
You will have learned to give yourself the respect that is due.
Dare To Believe:
That you are a wonderful, unique person.
That you are a once-in-all-history event.
That it's more than a right, it's your duty, to be who you are.
That life is not a problem to solve, but a gift to cherish.
And you'll be able to stay one up on what used to get you down.

(And for us lucky enough to be grand-mothers:)

Blessed are those who
spoil and snuggle,
hug and hope,
pray and pamper,
Boast and brag......
For they shall be called

I was really nervous of starting but:

"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."

"It always seems impossible until it's done."
Nelson Mandela

It's done!!

I will be going to visit with my sister so will be out for most of my day. I will be back later on this evening so will hopefully see you all then.

The Truth About Butterflies: A Memoir by Nancy Stephan
Publication Date: August 2, 2011
They belong to each other, Nancy and Nicole--mother and daughter. They're two halves of a whole, two facets of the same breath--until the day Nicole exhales. . . and never inhales again.

After the death of her daughter, and quickly losing her own battle with grief, Nancy decides to move from the house she can no longer bear to live in. While packing, she comes across a box in the attic. Inside this box, Nancy uncovers treasures she didn't know existed and evidence that her and her daughter's lives had been more divinely entwined than she could've imagined.

The Truth About Butterflies is a true story of grief, hope, and transformation, and a single enduring truth: Life cannot be restrained by death.

*Once you've read the book, meet the people who make up Nancy's story. Scroll down and visit her Amazon author page or watch the video on YouTube, "Meet the Characters: The Truth About Butterflies"

@ Donna
When on Shelfari looking up the book I just posted here, I see that there is another user there with your exact profile picture !! (they did a review of the book) - I was really surprised - of course I thought it was you who had reviewed - I have always loved your pic and often wondered what it is.
(there is also another user there who has the same pic as Nospin - so always have to check that one too)

Morning to you - I hope that you have nice things planned for today. ♥

Thanks for the info about your Fire's battery life. I very seldom turn on my wifi on my KK3 (not the best kindle to surf amazon or the web) but of course the Fire has all of the web facilities so understand you having it on all the time.

The School Gates by Nicola May
Publication Date: December 10, 2013
At 3.10pm every weekday, parents gather at Featherstone Primary in Denbury to collect their children.

For a special few, the friendships forged at the school gates will see them through lives filled with drama, secrets and sorrows. When Yummy Mummy Alana reveals the identity of her love-child's father, she doesn't expect the consequences to be quite so extreme. Ex Czech au-pair Earth Mummy Dana finds happiness in her secret sideline, but really all she longs for is another child. Slummy Mummy Mo's wife-beating husband leads her down a path she never thought possible, and Supper Mummy Joan has to cope when life deals her a devastating blow.

And what of Gay Daddy Gordon? Will he be able to juggle parenthood and cope with his broken heart at the same time?

Four very different mothers. One adorable dad. And the intertwining trials and tribulations that a year at the primary school gates brings

I'm watching West Wing, Playing Canasta and finishing the book..
