I have been reading a lot lately. Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life by Gisele Bündchen was surprisingly good. I am not even sure why I chose to read it. I tend to dislike gorgeous supermodels ( jealousy). She is a very kind woman and wonderful mother. Being that she is only 38 years old, I am surprised at how wise she is already.
Live Long and…What I Learned Along the Way by William Shatner with David Fisher is also a good read. My hubby is the real Trekkie around here, but he doesn’t care for memoirs so I thought I would give it a try. I have read some of his other books too and always enjoyed them. He shares a lot of what he has learned in life with stories of how he learned it.
One Heart at a Time by Delilah was also really interesting. If you have ever listened to the radio at night, you must have heard her radio show. I don’t usually listen to the radio at night, but over the years, I have heard her show. I had no idea she had so many children, most adopted. I also had no idea she had lost one to sickle cell anemia and one to suicide. She also has an incredible foundation that helps people in Africa. When I read about someone so dedicated, it makes me feel like I have wasted my life, but it also motivates me to want to do something-just not sure what yet.
I apologize for all the bold print above, I couldn’t get it to go away. Joanie hopes she is awww…worthy posing with some of the books.
