Two Words

Monday, I had my entire day turn around due to a simple text with only two words.  That got me thinking...how powerful can just two words be?

How about:

Love you!

Miss you!

Call me!

Come over!

Been there...

Done that!

Heading out!

Finally home!

My love

My son

My daughter

My grandkids

Look at all the power and emotion that can be expressed in just two words.  Reach out today...use just two words...and brighten someone's day.

Oh...and the two word text that turned my Monday around?  It was "Shoe size?"!!

Love,
Jerri

Old School

This past weekend, I went old school.

Sunday, I took a little time away from "have to" and "need to" and headed for the bookstore.  I wanted to re-read some classics and I felt a compulsion to read them in print form.  Now I do have all of these books on my e-reader, but I just had the desire to hold them in my hands.

I also went extremely girly old school.  What did I come home with?  Emma, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, Lady Chatterley's Lover, and Rebecca.  Those were my first introduction to "romance" books as a child (well, except for Lady Chatterley!!) and I just wanted to revisit them.

These books are classics for a reason.  The writing is superb, the storytelling incredible.  I look forward to re-exploring them.

How do you go old school?

Love,
Jerri
