I don’t often read in bed so immersed in the story that I finish the book but I did last night.
When I got up this morning and heard that Palestine had bombed Israel I felt like I was still reading the book which told the story of a Palestinian family who came to America. The older family members attempted to keep the old world customs and culture while the young family members embraced American traditions.
The Palestinian culture is so bizarre and unconventional to me that it’s extremely hard to understand – interesting but disturbing. This was a Read With Jenna selection. I recommend it.
And a story about a quilter’s thoughtfulness – when an avid quilter experiences dementia, her friend enlists the help of another quilter friend to help meet the goal of finishing the quilts. My first thought was “these are not 9 patch quilts to finish!” These are difficult quilts to pick up where someone else left off but look at the results – two gorgeous quilts!
Church tomorrow and then MORE BALLGAMES!
