Thought of the moment....
No matter how hard you try, you will NEVER control anyone else's attitudes, actions, or outcomes. The only person that you have the ability to directly impact is you, and it is your responsibility to learn how to do just that...to utilize the knowledge, skills, and abilities you have been given to impact the world in the most positive way that you can EVERY chance you get!

100th Post is a Contest!
Since I have made it this far in my blogging career and March was my one year bloggiversary, I think that I need to have another contest! So enough is enough. This is going to be short and sweet.
So I have a bunch of books to read because I have got some new ones and noticed that I have two copies of one. So one of you lucky participants are going to have the opportunity to win this delightful little gem. I just think that the cover is beautiful.
"Achingly beautiful and filled with heart-wrenchingly real characters: one of Hoffman's best." -Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Writing at the height of her powers, Alice Hoffman conjures three generations of a family haunted by love. Cool, practical, and deliberate, John is dreamy Arlyn's polar opposite. Yet the two are drawn powerfully together even when it is clear they are bound to bring each other grief. Their difficult marriage leads them and their children to a house made of glass in the Connecticut countryside, to the avenues of Manhattan, and to the blue waters of Long Island Sound. Glass breaks, love hurts, and families make their own rules. Ultimately, it falls to their grandson, Will, to solve the emotional puzzle of his family and of his own identity."Hoffman's shimmering, multigenerational melodrama bewitches with supernatural imagery while imaginatively dramatizing all-too-common heartaches." -Booklist"Alice Hoffman has written her most spellbinding, accomplished novel yet. . . . Although this is Hoffman's nineteenth book, it feels utterly fresh.Her voice-touched by the cadences of fairy tales-buoys us through the novel's saddest currents."
So all you have to do is fill out THIS FORM and I will be closing the contest on June 1st at midnight and picking a winner! Best wishes to all of you!
