Patti tagged me for one that’s making the rounds right now. The rules:
- Pick up the nearest book.
- Open it to page 123
- Find the fifth sentence.
- Post the next three sentences.
- Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.
The book: one I am reading right now for the purposes of reviewing – Mothers Need Time-Outs, Too (Susan Callahan, Anne Nolen, Katrin Schumann, New York: McGraw-Hill, 2008). Let this be a teaser:
Humans are better, happier beasts when their personal, emotional needs are being met. “Cerebral virtues–curiosity, love of learning–are less strongly tied to happiness than interpersonal virtues like kindness, gratitude, and capacity for love,” says Dr. Martin Seligman, author of Authentic Happiness. It’s the gentleness and appreciation that couples share in their best moments that nourishes them in a way nothing else can.
I’m tagging Bethany, Brittany, ML, Joanna, and Sheri. Have fun!
