Celebrate the Gifts of Life

a stonesAs we know, rarely does a job, mate or anything else of value just show up on our doorstep, without some action on our part. However, recently a friend surprised me with a wonderful book that she delivered to my front door, and I felt moved to deliver it to you too!

It is entitled, The Twelve Gifts of Birth by Charlene Costanzo which provides a message for children of all ages and the child in every adult, as the book jacket states so beautifully.

The manuscript idea came to the author in a dream, and was originally written for her two daughters as a gift of loving messages.

Talk about following your dreams!

Fortunately, her caring words are available to all audiences through her beautiful keepsake book.
