Day 56: 309 days left…88 books to go!

Simple Abundance  The Blessing of Health (Nov. 24th)
  •  "Money is going to have to buy a lot in the next few weeks, but it can't buy the gifts that count most:  good health, a loving and supportive marriage, healthy chidren, the fulfillment of creative expression, and inner peace."
  • "'One of the most sublime experiences we can ever have is to wake up feeling healthy after we have been sick.'"  Rabbi Harold Kushner, Who Needs God
  • "If you have a healthy mind, a healthy heart, and reserves of stamina and creative energy to draw on, the world is literally lying at your feet."
Simple Abundance  When You're Sick (Nov. 25th)
  • "Illness is the doctor to whom we pay most heed; to kindness, to knowledge, we make promises only; pain we obey."  Marcel Proust
Simple Abundance  Rx if for Harried Hearts and Frazzled Minds  (Nov. 26th)
  •    "Sometimes none of it makes sense.  Sometimes it just is.  But if we can hold on long enough for this night to give way to another day, all shall be well, even if it's different from what we had expected.  Even if it's different from what we had hoped for and believed with all our hearts would happen...
All shall be well,
And all shall be well,
And all manner of things shall be well.

Dame Julian of Norwich

  Reminds me instantly of hymn, "It is well with my soul" and the proverb "This too shall pass."

Simple Abundance  What Women Want  (Nov. 27th)
  • "A nap is not to be confused with sleeping.  We sleep to recharge our bodies.  We nap to care for our souls."
  • "'No day is so bad it can't be fixed with a nap.'"  Carrie Snow
