Have great and safe holiday. I will be back tomorrow with another product review.
Today is my 30th birthday. It is hard for me to believe that I am not 30. It seems like just yesterday I turned 21. When I turned 21 I decided that I wasn’t going to have anymore birthdays so why they keep coming is still a mystery to me. I decided that I wanted to post a few quotes and leave it at that.

This weeks quote is by Oprah Winfrey.
I loved this quote when I saw it because it is so true. If you are always looking at what you don’t have you will never be able to see what you do have. I have started to try and focus on the things I do have because when I focus on what I don’t have I found that I was more negative and I don’t want to be like that.

So this post was going to be an update on my cats because I haven’t written anything about them in years but I didn’t feel right considering what happened on Monday. I don’t know that I have ever posted about my grandparents cat name Vinnie on here but he was another black & white kitty like my Alley Cat is. He was older than she is but he has had a tough life as well. He was shot at one point and has been kicked & stomped on among other things.
Anyway we had to put him down on Monday night and even though he wasn’t my cat I still did love him. I grew up with him so it was hard to put him down. Because of that I don’t feel up to writing a update on my cats right now. Alley does have some health problems going on so I will write the update soon but right now just didn’t seem like the right time. Instead I am going to post a few pictures of him and leave it at the for this week. I also have a video of him that I am going to post as well.

Love Without End by Robin Lee Hatcher was an amazing book. I read the book that takes place before this book and I have to say that I was so glad that the author decided to turn this book into a series because I loved the setting and the series. In this book you get to know Chet & Kimberly. I instantly fell in love with the characters and was sad when the story ended because I really love this series of books. If you love romance books than I know you will love this book. You don’t have to read the first book to understand what goes on in this book so don’t worry if you haven’t read the first book.
Love Without End || A King’s Meadow Romance (Thomas Nelson, November 2014)
Chet and Kimberly have both failed when it comes to love. Will they risk their hearts to love again?
Chet Leonard’s life was forever changed when his 17-year-old son died and then, soon after, his wife walked out on their family. Over two years later, all he wants to do is hold onto his horse ranch and raise his remaining sons to be honorable men.
Kimberly Welch, widowed mother of Tara, a rebellious 15-year-old, has reached the end of her finances and nearly the end of her rope. She and Tara come to King’s Meadow to try to piece their lives back together again. Kimberly has no intention of becoming involved with the residents of this remote mountain community and certainly not with any man.
When octogenarian Anna McKenna returns to King’s Meadow and to the Leonard ranch, she becomes an agent of change and healing for the two hurting families. With her help, Kimberly and Chet may discover that true love has no end.
Best-selling novelistRobin Lee Hatcher is known for her heart-warming and emotionally charged stories of faith, courage, and love. The winner of the Christy Award for Excellence in Christian Fiction, the RITA Award for Best Inspirational Romance, two RT Career Achievement Awards, and the RWA Lifetime Achievement Award, Robin is the author of over sixty novels.
The Brothers’ Keeper by NLB Horton was a good book it just wasn’t the right fit for me. This is the second book in the series and I have to say that I would recommend reading the first one before this. Because I haven’t read the first book I found that I was super confused and kept getting lost as to what was going on in the book. I am going to read the first book and then re-read this book and see how I feel about it after I know more of the back story.
