Book review

I would like to say a word about a inspiring book that I read a while back.   The name of the book is Hitchhikers by Bernard Poduska

The true story of one man's amazing journey from a homeless and hopeless childhood to a life of conversion and faith.

The story starts in the spring of 1948 when Bernard Poduska and his family was evicted from their home in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Bernard was eight year old at the time, it tells of his family hitchhiking across the country trying to find a place to call home.  It tell of the hard times, and the suffering they went through.  It also tell of how Bernard, being an atheist, finds God.  This is a quote from the book.  " you will never know what's on down the road until you've made the journey; be grateful for any rides others may give you along the way, and whatever your destination, the journey is everything-- make the most of it."

I enjoyed this book, it is very different than the run-of-the-mill books.  I incourage everyone to give it a try.

Whooa (Big sigh of relief), I am so glad that November is here.  Don't get me wrong I love October  especially Halloween, but now that I am a grown up person Halloween isn't quite as fun as when I was a kid. Or maybe it is still as fun, but now I have to do all the work to prepare for  it. I love this time of year (really who doesn't?) I love the Beautiful autumn colors, and the slight nippy feeling outside. I love sitting by a cozy fire,  and taking really warm baths while the air around me has a slight chill.  Most of all I love Thanksgiving, and being around people I love. Well enough of my sentiments, and on to this really cute and simple hairstyle.This style is cute on everyone, and it is very quick.
