  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Remember Me” by Marion Ueckermann:

    “Seated cross-legged on the floor of her bedroom with her two best friends, Clarise Aylward leaned forward and lit the candles on the birthday cake her mom had made for them.

  2. Happy Friday!

    Today I am sharing the first two lines from The Highest of Hopes by Susan Anne Mason on my blog: Currently, I am reading A Silken Thread by Kim Vogel Sawyer, so I will share a line from that book here.

    The next time at services Caroline did her best to recall why she attended, to fix her thoughts on the service and not on the gentleman seated two rows behind her on her left.

    Happy reading!
