My mom reads "101 Ways to Celebrate the Ordinary" every day. She says
it really helps her and puts life in perspective for her. My mom is a Midwesterner
through and through. She was born on a dairy farm north of Big Rapids, MI and has
lived most of her 81 years in MI, IN, and OH.
I agree with my mom about the gift book 101 Ways to Celebrate the Ordinary. I am crazy about it also and suggest it frequently as a help for mild depression. I am quite
serious about this!
It also makes a perfect gift for just about everyone including a sister, neighbor, mom,
grandmother, aunt, niece, cousin or a friend.
Meet the author, Midwesterner Diane Reed Loew "Farmer's Wife."
Diane Loew is the author of 101 Ways to Celebrate the Ordinary and hosts her own radio show. She's also a columnist at Randomramblingsof.com, Grand Rapids Press, and several other sites including here at the thebarndoor.net.
Farmer's Wife's Wiggles and Wigglettes
It was not until I moved to the Southwest that I truly appreciated the Midwest.
Mind you I only stayed in the Southwest for two long years. I kissed the ground literally when we moved back.
101 Ways to Celebrate the Ordinary is 100 percent Midwest snippets. It's the
definition of and best of Midwestern life. I suggest it not only as a gift, but also to my writing students as a great example for them to follow in writing a gift book.
Try my mom's idea - read 101 Ways to Celebrate the Ordinary often and see
if your spirits don't rise or even soar.Check out 101 Ways to Celebrate the Ordinary
