I enjoyed reading this book. It has a little bit of many topics, from humor, love, depression, patriotism,

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.

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.

I was born in Odgen, Utah in 1968 and spent the next couple of years growing up in my mother’s care (helped by her family) while my father served as an Army Sergeant in the Vietnam War. Luckily, he returned home safely, and I made the adjustment to having a permanent dad in the house. My brother was born shortly afterwards, and all four of us moved
