I enjoyed reading this book. It has a little bit of many topics, from humor, love, depression, patriotism,
never giving up, etc. It is casually separated into topics depending on the month; for example, February covers love, Valentine and more; May covers words about Mothers and a couple of other subjects; June covers fathers, etc. Included in this little book of thoughts are short stories, some hilariously funny, some fantasy and some more serious. There are helpful quotes which I would carry wi

This is a great bunch of poems, 365, to be exact. You could read one poem per day, if you wanted to, or all in one day. The choice is up to you.

Richelle wrote these poems as a graduation gift to her son, but the content can be applied to anyone. Some are humorous. Some are inspirational. Some are a big kick in the pants, trying to boost motivation in the reader.

An excellent book by Richelle E. Goodrich, to read as the new year begins, I highlighted my favorite wishes! Here are a few of my favorites- "Take time to laugh, to talk, to hug, and to cry. These are the human relief valves."
"Few realize how loud their expressions really are. Be kind with what you wordlessly say.
"Moms are life's number one cheerleaders without uniforms."
"I wish upon a glimmering star,
My hopes as distant and as far.
So if this wish does not come true,
I'm thankful for the f

This book mirrors Smile Anyway with it's new and inspirational daily quotes; however, this book includes a small number of emotional mini-stories that sweetly deliver life lessons. For those who enjoy poetry, each month begins with an original haiku. Other varieties of poems are scattered throughout the reading as well. Making Wishes is both thought-provoking and entertaining; it can be enjoyed one entry per day or, if preferred, taken all-in at one sitting.
