Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

When faced with a life-changing decision, Jake Duval takes the road less traveled. In the face of uncertainty, he stands firm in his beliefs and decides to raise his daughter, Rylee, on his own.
Through perseverance, dedication, and holding onto a dream, he struggles to better himself and give his daughter the world.
Despite his love for his daughter, Jake is disillusioned by love and bitter from betrayal after Rylee’s mother abandons them.
That is, until the moment he sees her—Faith Castellano—and everything seems to fall into place. He begins to believe in crazy things, such as “love at first sight.”
As Faith sweeps him off his feet, they live life, make promises to each other, and experience the beautifulness of love and adventure, Jake comes to discover that nothing is as it seems and sometimes your dreams are the reason those promises you make are broken.

One, one thousand.
Two, one thousand.
Three, one thousand.
Four, one thousand . . .
My body jerks as my parachute opens, and it is time to maneuver myself to my landing destination.
Soon, I’ll hit the ground and the real ‘fun’ will begin. No problems are expected, but there is always the chance that something may go wrong.
In the seconds prior to landing, a whole lot of things go through your mind. Because you know that once your feet hit the ground, there isn’t a guarantee you’ll go home alive. You may never see your children grow or hold your wife’s hand as it wrinkles next to yours. So many things you never did and should have done go through your mind, and you have to push them back because you have to focus on what’s to come.
It’s times like these you become a praying man. You pray the mission goes well and you can get your men out alive. That even if you go home with a bullet in you, at least you go home alive.
You remember why you carry a gun and fight this fight. Not for yourself, but for something greater. You fight for your country, for your loved ones and their safety, and for honor. For something more than yourself.
Because nothing makes a man greater than what he’s willing to do and sacrifice for the betterment of those he loves.
Despite all my praying, something tells me that this time will be different than the times before. I am not afraid to die, per say, but I am afraid to die without telling my wife and daughter I love them one last time.
