One Simple Act

This is one of the best books I have read in a long time.  Simple reading but profound advice.  It is a book that one chapter a day would be wonderful reading, but once you start reading it, you may not can put it down.  It only has 207 pages and would be a wonderful way to start your New Year.  If only everyone in our world could follow these concepts, life would be so much better.  To give you a feel for what is in store when you read, I am including the Ten Rules for Happier Living.  The author states that she wished she knew who penned these rules, but I will give her all the credit for them.  If you have never read her books, she writes about knitting groups and the things that go on in the groups lives.  Cute books and so enjoyable.  This book is different though and it helps you understand why her other books are so wholesome to read.  Here they are -

Ten Rules for Happier Living
1.    Give something away - no strings attached.
2.    Do a kindness - and forget it.
3.    Spend a few minutes with the aged - their experience is priceless guidance.
4.    Look intently into the face of a baby - and marvel.
5.    Laugh often - it's life's lubricant.
6.    Give thanks - a thousand times a day is not enough.
7.    Pray - or you will lose the way.
8.    Work - with vim and vigor.
9.    Plan as though you'll live forever - because you will.
10.  Live as though you'll die tomorrow - because you will, on some tomorrow.

You might want to post these on your refrigerator to remind you to do "One Simple Act" each day.
Love you, hope you have a wonderful New Year and a Blessed day!
