November's recap

Hi ladies. Here is a recap of the meeting on the 21st! We had a good crowd - we missed Carolyn and were happy to welcome Kimberly!

Our next meeting will be on Sunday, December 14th at 2:00 pm at Barbara's house. Please bring a wrapped gift book (under $15) for an exchange. Also, please bring something yummy to share. We will be voting on our next few books, so if you have any good ideas (2-3) for a book for us to consider, please send them to Sherry. We will be voting much the same way we did last time, but feel that each chosen book should have at least 4-1/2 votes!

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly was discussed. We talked about the feeling the book left us with (uplifting, personal, incredible people); why we thought it was written (he wanted to share his personal story rather than leave a legacy, he was a communicator so needed to continue communicating); we thought about caretakers in facilities and their thoughts and concerns; we lauded the behavior and dedication of the speech therapist; and a bunch of other stuff, which my brain won't wrap around right now (comments anyone else???)

It was great to see you all. Looking forward to December!

And, the winner of our book drawing for The Secret Between Us was Carol!

Thanks for hosting a great meeting, Carol.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
