Today was the second gathering of our book club. Aside from the lively discussion, my favorite part of the meeting was the assortment of snacks: popcorn, cupcakes, Brie cheese with crackers and brownies as thick as a book.
Yummmm…my favorite kind of lunch!
And even though I finished our book selection yesterday at midnight, I promise I did not procrastinate reading it. I had actually wanted to start reading the book as soon as it was chosen last month. But, afraid that I would remember nothing for the next meeting, I made myself wait till the week before in order to retain as much information as possible.
While I still couldn’t remember all of the character names (there were a lot!), I am proud to say that I was able to contribute a lot to the discussion.
And as I sat there munching on snacks and listening to everyone else talk, I realized how grateful I was that I hadn’t disregarded the opportunity like I would have in the past.Instead, I had chosen to Live Love Life Now™ and to try something new…and so far it’s paying off in spades.
