Say What You Need to Say

"It is folly of our species that we reserve the greatest bouquets for our dead."
Richard Paul Evans

My thoughts:
* Make the most of every day with those we love.
* Don't ever put off showing family and friends how we feel about them.
* Forgive as often as we need to (which will be always.)
* Say what you need to say. Don't wait to say "I love you," because we never know when it might be the last time we will have the chance.

Suggested Reading

Book: The Key of Kilenya
Author: Andrea Pearson

The Book:
When two vicious wolves chase fourteen-year-old Jacob Clark down a path from our world into another, his life is forever changed. He has no idea they have been sent by the Lorkon—evil, immortal beings who are jealous of powers he doesn’t know he possesses—powers they desire to control. The inhabitants of the new world desperately need Jacob's help in recovering a magical key that was stolen by the Lorkon and is somehow linked to him. If he helps them, his life will be at risk. But if he chooses not to help them, both our world and theirs will be in danger. The Lorkon will stop at nothing to unleash the power of the key—and Jacob's special abilities.

This was a very fun read with plenty of action to keep the story moving. I love the world the author created and the storyline never gets dull. This is the beginning a series that is sure to be great:-) Both youths and adults will enjoy The Key of Kilenya.

You are so right, Jewel. When someone dies, it makes everything different and so many people have regrets.

With all the slamming of Michael Jackson when he was alive and could feel the pain of it, there was very little after he died. I never heard any. How sad that people judge and hurt one another.

Hi, Jewel! Thanks again for your review. :-) I'm wondering how open you'd be to posting it on Amazon and Goodreads? I'd really, really appreciate it! :-)
