When the Buttercupland Book Club first met in April I casually mentioned that I'd love to write about books written by my blog buddies. Immediately I received a response from Terra, of Terra Garden. I've happily been a blog buddy of Terra's for quite awhile and remembered she and a group of blog friends had written a book about Christmas, "Scrapbook of Christmas Firsts." But I didn't realize Terra is also one of the authors of "A Scrapbook of Motherhood Firsts: Stories to Celebrate & Wisdom to Bless Moms," newly published and absolutely terrific.
Terra very graciously shared a copy of the book with me, and I am a lucky reader. It is lovely, with the prettiest design and color and lovely, too, with stories and thoughts about the joys of motherhood. I think it would make a great Mother's Day present for beloved mothers, grandmothers, aunts, cousins and Godmothers. Gift wrap a copy, bring a plate of cookies and a jug of lemonade and give the gift of time and talk and memory. The talented authors -- all blog buddies -- share their memories and it's a wonderful springboard to reflecting on memories you share with some of the dearest in your life. In a very past life I sold books at one of the Cokesbury book stores and this would have been my go-to book for Mother's Day gifts.
Terra is doing a giveaway -- just a few hours left -- but click the link above and do stop by and visit. Terra, thanks so much for giving me happy hours of reading!
I know there must be other Buttercupland authors. We're a talented group!
Again, thanks for all the good wishes and prayers. I'm walking a little better and not in quite so much pain.
I know I started May blogging a little early, but I'm excited about lots of fun events coming up. I think May is going to be a terrific blog month -- great giveaway for later this week.
Have a terrific Tuesday and a sweet week!
