This (usually) calm, quiet and grateful 💁🏻♀️loves to read best in bed anytime. Best book in the last 15 days was “The Beekeeper: Rescuing the stolen women in Iraq.” No worst 📖.

Next up from a random TBR pick, “Americanah,” a much anticipated read and gift from @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 😘
“The beekeeper” 💔While the evils of man cracked my heart a dozen times while reading this, there was still a beauty in those who risk their life to help another human being simply because people aren‘t lost yet, hearts still want to do what is kind and Godly, there is hope. Please let there alway be hope.
Thank you to all you wonderful Littens who have been tagging me since last week in fun posts and games... I‘m not ignoring you my friends... I‘ve been fighting bronchitis and not winning. Hoping to be upright soon.
PSA: Antibiotics aren‘t as fun as cookies. Following doctor orders though 😷
Though I didn‘t make any New Year‘s Resolutions, I decided to make a goal of reading the current 24 books in my TBR baskets 🧺while still having many library adventures and forever adding to my Litsy tbr list 📝
First up, the nonfiction “Hotel K.”
Im a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with no pets right now because of my work hours (I love woofers). I can‘t get enough of psychological thrillers/suspense 📚. Picking a favorite author is like picking a favorite cookie ... no can do.
I love bookish mugs, stickers, and wish I journaled more. Coffee in the morning and tea in the evening. I keep track of the books I read each year. Purple or blue.
Reaching one milestone is an accomplishment... but three? Congratulations @Chrissyreadit for such a an amazing threesome!!!! (Don‘t be twisted Littens!) 😘
Favorite read this year: “Small great things.” This book made me feel everything. I snarled, cried, cursed at characters, prayed for our country, and smiled.
Looking forward to in 2020: “Becoming” by Michelle Obama. I love her. I need hope again. I just never bought it for myself. 2020 goal❤️

3. Any 🍪 I can fit in my mouth.
4. My kidney recipient got a professional picture taken of her and her husband, their adult kids, and grandchildren for me. The oldest grandchild (age 4) was holding a chalk sign that said “We ❤️ you” and framed it. I sobbed 💖

1. Sleep 🛏 😴 Whether it‘s tucking into bed for a snoozefest or wrapping into a warm blanket burrito and drifting off to sleep on the couch, resting body and mind is my favorite self care ritual. Thank you for the tag @sudi @Gissy @NeedsMoreBooks
2. Sending blessings to @veritysalter @thebluestocking @Moodyreader
“A lot of people walk by all day. You can tell which are the vets. We are the ones who don‘t have to ask about the size or the type of material used to make the wall. We just stand and look, not caring who sees us cry, just like no one cared who died.”

I would love to have lunch with Stephen King. I‘d ask him if he‘s looking for a dog sitter for Molly - aka the Thing of Evil 🐶 and have my recommendations ready (just individual papers of nose and muddy paw prints). I probably own around 300-400 physical books. I give a lot away/donate so they can live on.
