Because I really reeeeally want to see the movie, The Help, I am spending every spare minute trying to get the book read. I have this thing about reading a book before I see the movie.
This book really hits home for me, because when I was little (4yrs.-6yrs.) we lived in Texas. My Mom worked as a secretary and my Dad worked for Haliburton and traveled a lot. We had a colored (I use that word, meaning no offense, because that is what we called black people in the 50's)lady who took care of my sister and I. Her name as Susie and we loved her. She watched us, cleaned house and started dinner for my Mom.
I remember her so well because she had a superstition that has stayed with me my whole life.
We lived in an old house and Susie would bathe us before my Mom came home. Old house...old pipes.
Sometimes the pipes would make a terrible sound when Susie ran our bath water. She told us it was the devil and we had to hide in the closet until it stopped. Yep, she would hide with us. I think the book took place in th 60's, but it fascinates me.
I am still doing my daily reading in my One Year Bible.
Now for the nightstand. I think I have told you I don't get magazines in the mail anymore, so when I see some of my favorites in a magazine stand, I grab it.
I haven't opened a one of them, but it's like "money in the bank", knowing I have these two favorites just waitig to be opened.
This last one is new to me and I am looking forward to readng it. It is a Christian magazine recommend by a couple of bloggy friends.
The cover is so pretty, I know I won't be disappointed.
Now, if I could just find the time.
This week, I finished two back to school dresses and one skirt. I will wait until Monday morning to take a picture of the girls in their new outfits. They look so much better on the girls than hanging on a hanger.
They love them and so does their Mom.
God is Good!!
Life is Good!!
