Isn't it funny how thrifting finds come in waves? I am coming across tons of Children's books, New Fiction, Nonfiction and Cookbooks in abundance right now. From people clearing things out after Christmas, perhaps?
One of my favorites has been this book by Jean Hersey from the 60's "The Shape Of A Year". The woman knew how to enjoy the simple things in life and appreciate the things we (I) so often take for granted.
I really struggle with stopping and fully enjoying little moments...there is a to-do list of my very own making that often times becomes my obsession, trying to get things done and crossed off and then filled in with more things to get done. Not that there isn't a place for all that. But this book is reminding me, teaching me, to open my eyes to some things that shouldn't just be passed over, but fully savoured.
From what I can tell by online research, this book is now out of print...but if you come across it, buy it and read it.
Enjoy your day, Sonya
