    Be Soulful, Be True

    This book was the perfect selection for the occasion and person I was looking for. I wanted something sweet, sassy and interesting to read. I wanted meaningful, soulful and relatable. I spent some time in the Hallmark Store looking and made several mental selections, but could not make up my mind. I decided to make one more sweep and stopped in front of a rack and gave it another twirl and this time I hit the jackpot! The minute I saw the word "Soulful" I knew I found just what I was looking for! I confidently put back another choice and scurried to the checkout with my treasure. Before sending it to its new home, I sat and read every word, smiling, chuckling and agreeing with the wit and wisdom, reveling in the quips and quotes. This is perfect, I thought and I was right! It was perfect for a brilliant, stately, accomplished, educated, professional Black Southern Belle who radiates soul in all she does; especially her mentoring and spicy cuisine mastering. She is one who makes a mean lemon pound cake and swanky sweet potato pie with no sweat. I had wondered what I could say to her or give her as she turns 80. She has it all, everything she needs for the journey she embarked on so many decades ago. This book serves as a reminder that she has covered many miles, shared many smiles and still has many possibilities to explore. She thoroughly and truly enjoyed the book! I know this because she told me. As she spoke with me, she lingered on the words "be true" and slowly and methodically released a sigh. I sensed that her own truth has set her free. She is on a journey that is paved with questions, emotions, sometimes with pain and uncertainties. Such a journey could rob one of joy, soul and truth. This book is the calming, reassuring salve that hope is here and words are rejuvenating. She said she loves it and said so soulfully. I believe her.

    Be Soulful, Be True

    The book title captured my attention, because it represents my cousin Anita. I did not know what to get my namesake (an African American therapist in California). But this book was an answer to my prayer. She is well spoken, opinionated but lastly a lover of her heritage. So this 30 year collection by Mahogany, was created specifically for her. I mailed it for her birthday Feb 2 and I was so excited waiting for her response. Delivery was promised by Monday(2/3). However, it did not arrive until Wed(2/5). Nevertheless, she loved the book, the thought behind it, and me for caring......

    Quick gentle reminders

    This was a quick read for me but so profound. Every page is worth reading and has something valuable to say. There's usually power in simplicity and I find each page to be quite powerful. A highly recommended book for quick positive reminders to keep you moving in the right direction.
