Of how blessed I have been in so many ways, and still continue to be. I have spent the last couple weeks spring cleaning, making my house smell good, freshening up rooms, and having fun evenings at home together as a family. AND…March Madness…a big part of our life here for sure. We have our brackets (mine soley chosen on how much farther south each team is because of SUNSHINE, with the exception of MI of course, who wins it all. Janey and I made ours cute with gel pens and sunshines, and flowers. Dad and the boys think we are crazy (not about MI about how we choose) but we might just get lucky.
It’s a mud pit outside but that doesn’t stop the kids from wanting to go out. Patrick has a Lenten basketball shooting practice resolution he must keep. Andrew has track practice every evening. Fresh air and exercise!
I’m on a roll! Went on a WWII kick except for one light read.
Incredible true story-easier to read prose, heartbreaking as all books about the Holocaust would be, but filled with hope also.
About a young girl surviving in a Siberian work camp-an incredible story-we are SO lucky to live in a peaceful country!

This one is my favorite out of them all. Set in a concentration camp-another love and survival story-a wife is forced to serve in the camp brothel, and is saved by a relationship with the enemy, while still holding out hope for reunification with her husband.
And for a light read:
Written in a unique way (reminds me a little of Bridget Jones). Really really funny but well written also.
