We’re finally here. It’s the last Thursday of the year and my final round up for the “decade”! Happy Thursday All!!

A book I read

Den of Thieves – James B Stewart

(As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.)

Working in finance, you would think that this would be on my reading list a long time ago. Well, it was but I never got around to reading. It’s 550 pages in small print. So you can imagine that what a dauting task I thought it would be particularly because this is a true account and written by a journalist. I was so wrong. It’s such a well-written, exciting book. The writer has taken a subject matter that should be riddled with technical language and made it a novel that I couldn’t put down.

I’m glad that this is the book I chose to end this decade of reading.

A song I’m listening to

One Republic – I lived

So many good songs have come out in the last 10 years. It’s hard to pick one that would be appropriate. But, I think this is a good one to end the decade.

 

Words I love

A child will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, pay packets emptier, homes happier, clothes shabbier….

The Past Forgotten and the Future Worth Living.

~Collected

My mother had this plaque hanging in her room and she would read this to me over and over again. It made me happy that I was all that for her. But I never fully understood those words until my daughter was born.
