Friday's #Quote of the Week - You are beautiful!

Happy New Year

Friday's Quote of the week:

"In case no one told you today: 
You are beautiful. 
You are loved. 
You are needed. 
You are alive for a reason.
 You are stronger than you think.
 You are going to get through this. 
Don't give up.

You are all of the above and so much more. Just when you think everything is falling apart, know that it is all falling into place. Love yourself and everyone else will.

Share this post with your friends and family. Do you have a quote that has helped you? If so, leave me a comment and I may use it in a future post.

Book Review: The Next Person You Meet In Heaven 


Author: Mitch Albom
Book/Series: The Five People You Meet In Heaven 
Genre: Fiction

This is the sequel to “The Five People You Meet In Heaven.” We meet again with an adult Annie, the little girl, that was injured at Ruby Pier Amusement Park.  We see how Annie has grown up and the turmoil the accident has had on her life.  She cannot remember the day of the accident. Annie marries Pablo and on her wedding night, she dies.  She encounters five people in heaven just as Eddie did in the first book. One of the people Annie meets in heaven is Eddie, the park mechanic, that saved her life.   Each person she meets in heaven will teach her a lesson.  In the book we see heaven.  The view for each character is different. 

Both stories hold a spiritual element.  They talk about heaven and forgiveness. You are faced with hardships and how you confront the injuries, bad decisions, and struggles while alive.  Each person Annie meets teaches her a valuable lesson that we too can learn from.  When Annie touches Eddie’s hand you are transported to his life. You see Eddie as a baby, how his dad treated his family, up to the moment he died. You feel his sorrow at finding out he killed someone during the war that he didn’t know he did. You view that person’s side of the story. You get to see and feel what they felt.  The decisions they made and how it played out.  A delightful story that will pull your heartstrings and keep you on the edge of your seat to the very end. What a surprise ending it is, but you need to read the book to find out how it ends.
