This morning I’ve been spending a bit of time reading Advice for A Happy Life: Lessons from my Mother. This is a story of reflections from the author on her mother, who got a lot of joy out of clipping articles and quotes out of various publications…little scraps of “life advice” that she would frequently mail to her daughter.
I was particularly drawn to this book because my mother does the exact same thing. Yes, even in the digital age when people email and share stuff like this on Facebook, my mother still gets out her scissors and clips meaningful things she finds in print and mails it to me. It’s one of the ways that she shows she is thinking of me and hoping for all good things in my life.
Advice for a Happy Life is a quick, sweet read, chock-full of wit and wisdom that will touch mothers of all ages. If you are looking for a last-minute gift idea for Mother’s Day, this is definitely a good one and it’s under $10 for the hardback, and even less for the Kindle version! Give it along with some yummy butter cookies, which is what I munched on while reading the book. They made the perfect pair! 🙂
