I borrowed this book from my sister and have yet to finish it or return it. For some reason this year, my reading has fallen behind as I have spent so much time on other things, including learning how to sew.
I have been married for 3 years now and, to be honest, marriage hasn’t come as easily for me as it has for so many. Not the madly in love with my wonderful husband part, but the managing roles and meeting new friends in this different stage of life part. About a year ago I woke up and realized that I needed to stop complaining about not having friends and start reaching out to more people to create new friendships. And one of the easiest ways for my husband and I to do this is invite people over for dinner. It has made a big difference.
And picking this book up every now and then has helped me realize that I don’t have to reach perfection in what I am doing, I just have to be real, try, and make it happen. So I’m working on that. And I am so glad I have the reminder to not apologize and start simple. I would definitely recommend it.
