I'm still trying to learn this
Shimmering with warmth, wit, and insight, Joy for Beginners is a celebration of life: unexpected, lyrical, and deeply satisfying.
I think what I liked about this was that the friends knew each other and challenged one another in encouraging and good ways.
One of the quotations I'd marked says this: "She couldn't remember the last time she had really looked up and paid attention to anything higher than the top of her children's heads."
Lessons and reminders:
Wake up. Pay attention. Listen. Learn. Try new things. Treasure your friends. Treasure your families. And don't be afraid.
