I’ve Been Thinking… Reflection, Prayers, and Meditation for a Meaningful Life

I’ve Been Thinking… Reflection, Prayers, and Meditation for a Meaningful Life, By: Maria Shriver
Self help books are not typically what I read. I am a cozy mystery junky. However, when I was perusing the online library the other evening after my latest novel had concluded and the protagonist had solved yet another mystery, a book by Maria Shriver popped up on my kindle screen. It was a newly acquired e-book that the library was advertising entitled, “I’ve Been Thinking…Reflection, Prayers, and Meditation for a Meaningful Life. Maria Shriver has always intrigued me. She is smart, beautiful, and a Kennedy. I decided to read just the introduction to the book, which was a few pages long and that is all it took. I soon found myself checking out a copy and downloading it to my kindle. I have gone this far with other books not in the mystery genre, but I seldom continue reading on and before I know it 21 days are up and the library has repossessed the copy I downloaded to my kindle. This book was different. I found myself drawn to reading it before bed, telling others about it, and reading it on my lunch breaks when I subbed at school. It is very well written and insightful. I like how the chapters start with a quote and end with a prayer. This book was exactly what my soul needed.
