Another Book, Another Letter

I finished another book which takes care of another letter (R) in my A-Z alphabet challenge. This book was Making Toast by Roger Rosenblatt.

It's a short, very touching book about the sudden death of Rosenblatt's adult daughter. After her death, he and his wife move into their daughter's home to help their son-in-law take care of three very young children. It's very touching and sweet and even made me laugh at times. Rosenblatt sounds like a fabulous grandfather!

They make the best of a very tough situation. I've been sad on behalf of my children, but at least it's not as terrible as trying to outlive them.

I just started a book we're reading in our book group: Unsqueezed: Springing free from skinny jeans, nose jobs, highlights and stilettos by Margot Starbuck. I'm barely into this one, but I think it's going to be fun. I already love her message: I am made in God's image, and I am beautiful just as I am!

yes, outliving your children is terrible. But God's grace IS sufficient.
