My son got me Mother‘s Day presents (okay technically grandma did but it was the thought, he got one I splurged the rest). I got The Sentence #becauseoflitsy and have already started reading it!

This short book of poems has a poem on almost any topic. They will make you think and Feel. It will remind you of the small joys in life. I find myself Agreeing with the author. I enjoyed this little book.

So, I think I posted this before, this has nothing to with books, well a few posts do, but I started a blog that talks about my healing journey from human trafficking and domestic violence but when I got a new phone I didn‘t save the login info for the old one so I started a new one and have been posting fairly regularly. Since April is sexual assault awareness month I thought I‘d share. www.beautyfromashesshine.Wordpress.com

My best friend and I are starting a book club. I‘ve never been part of a book club and I don‘t know what to expect. We picked the book, but as much as I love reading I have a hard time putting my thoughts into words unless I‘m writing so I‘m worried I won‘t be any good, and I‘m not sure what to expect.

ozma.of.oz I always write down some notes for my book club. Things I liked, things I didn‘t, any questions I had. The important part is not whether you liked the book or not, but if you like talking with your friend about it. Hope you have a good time! 3mo
wanderinglynn The great thing about book clubs is there‘s no one way to do them. And like @ozma.of.oz I often take notes or flag pages with post-its to help me. Have fun! 3mo
CarolynM At my book club we just talk. We start with the book but never finish there. It's always interesting to see where the conversation goes. 3mo
BethM There‘s no right way to do it! Just enjoy! That being said I much prefer my Litsy book clubs to my IRL one bc my IRL rarely picks books in my preferred genres, and almost always choose thrillers/murders. 3mo
shanaqui I usually find that it's what other people say that makes me really think -- I don't usually have anything interesting to say until I've heard other people talk, and then I start agreeing with/arguing with their point of view. 3mo

While the writing isn‘t all that great and I had issues with the end, the main character hit home. As someone who was trafficked I understood where Lex was coming from. Though I had issues with some of it I read this in one sitting.

@Chrissyreadit I love everything I got for my #wintersolsticeswap thank you so much!!! I do have a sort of newbie question, what is the broom with bells for?? I love it and hung it on my door. I love the books and gifts I'm so excited! Thank you❤❤ @sprainedbrain

sprainedbrain Oh what a gorgeous bunch of gifts! And you didn‘t ask me, but you did the exact right thing hanging the besom on your door to guard against negative energy. And it looks super festive too! ❤️ 5mo
Insightsintobooks Oh okay neat! I absolutely love it! Thank you for answering 😊 5mo
Chrissyreadit Yay! I‘ve been loving images of seasonal Besom‘s and yours was the first I put together. 💙 I hope you have a Blessed Yule and enjoy the season of the return of the light. 5mo

I really don't know yet it's my first yule lol. I want to do something but I'm not sure what?? I thought the lady part of my #wintersolsticeswap package was going to arrive earlier this week but I was mistaken and it should arrive today. I do love hot cocoa and spending time with friends that are family. 😊 I haven't been able to for ten years due to an abusive ex And last year I was just refinding my friends after escaping him.
@Chrissyreadit

Chrissyreadit I think cocoa and friends sound like a lovely way to celebrate Yule? Will your child(ren) join in? 6mo
Insightsintobooks @Chrissyreadit of course! I ran out of characters to type lol! My two boys are my world. 6mo

I just finished this book. I enjoyed it, however I do wish it expanded on a few things. I found the part mentioned about the Kabbalah interesting and would enjoy reading more books by this author.

I have an affinity for earth and air magic. I'm very drawn to Shamanisn. I'm a leo sun and scorpio moon. I love healing magic and energy healing. I have plenty of tarot and oracle cards. I love the moon. My spirit animal is a snowy owl. Being a leo I love anything bright, but being a scorpio I'm not afraid of the dark. My favorite colors are black, red, and purple. I really like the Netflix series the good witch. @sprainedbrain #basicwitchswap
