I have a book to finish, to loan to DD, so she can read it, and then we can discuss it. The title is: The Four Agreements - A Toltec Wisdom Book , by Don Miguel Ruiz. I'll gather other books I've read, to loan to her, will put them into a gift bag or a blank gift bag from The Dollar Tree, for her to transport them easily in, back home.

I might loan her books I've not read yet, which I've bought from The Dollar Tree, too. I don't want to overwhelm her with too many, because she's currently listening to audio books at You Tube and is reading a lot of Norman Vincent Peale's books, too. I'll gather books, to show her, when she comes tomorrow. She can decide if she wants to read them or not. If I don't finish the "Agreements" book, I'll give her books at Christmastime, to return home with her then. OR in Jan., when it's my b-day.

DD said she already owns the book, "The Four Agreements," by Don Miguel Ruiz, so I'll keep my copy. I've ordered the companion book to it, which comes Tuesday or Wednesday.

DD isn't reading that much right now, so declined the offer to take any of my books on loan over the holidays.

At Christmas, DH gives me a money gift. I plan on purchasing more books by Don Miguel Ruiz and 2 by his son, Don Miguel Ruiz, Jr.

We finished the seven newer seasons of Doctor Who, so have been watching movies on Netflix. "The Apostle" with Robert Duvall was good, but it is only there until Dec 1st. Also watched "The Duchess" with Kiera Knightley, which I enjoyed and DH just endured for my sake. :) We both liked "On My Way", which is in French with English subtitles, so we really had to pay attention!

I'm currently reading, "The Power of Patience," by M. J. Ryan, a female Christian writer.

I'm getting the companion book to "The Four Agreements," by don Miguel Ruiz, on Tuesday. The Four Agreements are:
1- Be impeccable with your word,
2- Don't take anything personally,
3- Don't make assumptions,
4- Do your very best.
I enjoy those 4 points the author makes, to be a better person. I've memorized the 4 agreements, ask myself throughout the day, if I'm doing them or not, which helps me daily with my self-care, routines, relationships, and a whole lot more.

I ordered my Christmas gifts, from DH, to me, today. They are 4 books and 1 music CD. They are:

"The Fifth Agreement: A Practical Guide to Self-Mastery," by don Miguel Ruiz and don Jose Ruiz,

"The Circle of Fire: Inspiration and Guided Meditations for Living in Love and Happiness, by don Miguel Ruiz,

"The Five Levels of Attachment: Toltec Wisdom for the Modern World," by don Miguel Ruiz Jr., Forward by don Miguel Ruiz,

"Living a Life of Awareness: Daily Meditations on the Toltec Patch, by don Miguel Ruiz Jr.,

"Closer," an older music CD, which Josh Groban released when he was 22 years old; he's about 32 - 33 years old now, I believe the Internet said.

I continue to read, Crochet Saved my Life," by Kathryn Vercillo and "The Practice of Patience," by M. J. Ryan, too. :mrgreen:
