To Kill a Mockingbird

 
I finished reading To Kill a Mockingbird  yesterday.  I read it in high school, but couldn't recall much about it, and I wanted to read Harper Lee's book coming out later this year, so I thought it would be a good time to re-read this classic.  I was not dissapointed in my choice.
 
I think I had a greater understanding and appreciation for the human choices and issues brought up in it that what I would have in high school.  The charcters in the book drew me in.  I was on the edge of me seat waiting for what was coming next.  It was captivating and heartbreaking and real (for a novel anyway). 
 
It was a journey into the lives of a small town, many years ago who faced challenges in race.  I saw the good and the bad in people and those who stood by and those who hoped for change in the characters.  I loved the stand they took in supporting Tom Robinson and fighting for him and what they believed in, and I could see a divine alignment of characters in a way that lead to the beginning of change for a town.

You Are More Than You Know

I just finished this book. It was a good read, and I think for the right person incredibly helpful and insightful.I personally don't feel like I live my life in fear or controlled by fear too often, occasionally yes, but not regularly.  (Maybe I'm in denial?!)  This books focused on overcoming fear with faith, which is an excellent message."At this juncture of my life I'm not convinced normal is an obtainable or even desirable goal, but embracing our God-given uniqueness is. In fact, it's an adventure that leads us to embracing that we are more than we know because the Lord is greater - far greater - than we can ever imagine." -Patsy Clairmont

Uh oh!

Ruth has started saying Uh Oh now!  She started it at the sitter's yesterday and continued through the evening!  I'm hoping it's the gateway to more words for her!  Currently her vocabulary is lots of sounds, mom and uh oh.

Do you have allergies?

Every time someone has sneezed over the weekend, Elinore asks "do you have allergies?"

Clearly she's learned about allergy season somewhere and is concerned about others and their allergies now.

It's cute.
