Everyday Tidbits...

I am having vision issues which are terrifying to someone whose work and interests lie in reading and writing. Because of this, I am falling behind in some of my reviewing commitments and ask for your support and patience.

Life is Tough - I Doubt I'll Make it Out Alive...Review

Welcome to another stop on the Life is Tough Virtual Tour and Life Saver Challenge, with Stacy Gooch-Anderson.

This was, quite simply, a delightful book about finding the joy in life. Stacy Gooch-Anderson, author of The Santa Letters, has written a book of humorous vignettes about the ups and downs of motherhood and life in general.

Stacy shares 28 lessons that she has learned over the course of her life, and with each lesson we see how she, not only, grew from the experience, but changed her perspective.

With lessons like, "Life is like a roller coaster. You can scream every time you hit a bump or throw up your arms and enjoy the ride" to "Sometimes it's better to leap first and then look. The view might scare you otherwise", we learn that humor is the best way to deal with life's challenges.

Stacy has taken her life is tough concept and recognized that we all need "life savers" in our lives to help us make it through. That life saver could be a person helping you out, or a thought that brightens your day and gives you something to ponder. On her blog, Stayin' Alive With Stacy, she provides a daily "life saver" or gem of wisdom. All are funny, but thought-provoking and true.

To learn more about Stacy, find the other tour stops and book reviews, and see the daily life saver, please visit Stacy's blog. You can purchase your own copy of Life is Tough from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Deseret Book or Seagull Book.
