GIVEAWAY: The Gift Of An Ordinary Day by Katrina Kinison

Full Description (taken from here):

The Gift of an Ordinary Day is an intimate memoir of a family in transition-boys becoming teenagers, careers ending and new ones opening up, an attempt to find a deeper sense of place, and a slower pace, in a small New England town. It is a story of mid-life longings and discoveries, of lessons learned in the search for home and a new sense of purpose, and the bittersweet intensity of life with teenagers--holding on, letting go.

Poised on the threshold between family life as she's always known it and her older son's departure for college, Kenison is surprised to find that the times she treasures most are the ordinary, unremarkable moments of everyday life, the very moments that she once took for granted, or rushed right through without noticing at all.

The relationships, hopes, and dreams that Kenison illuminates will touch women's hearts, and her words will inspire mothers everywhere as they try to make peace with the inevitable changes in store.

  12. This book sounds so good. I'm a mother of 3 boys and sometimes, in the middle of the chaos, I have to stop myself and remember that it won't always be this way and that I will miss this someday. I would love to read this book!

  29. Sometimes our lives can get pretty hectic so it is nice to have an ordinary day and just do normal everyday things. I like to get up and have a shower and then sit down for a coffee and read the paper. Just ordinary things that I love to do.

  30. This sounds like a good book. It's hard to let go and let your children lead their own lives. Perhaps she has some tips on how to do that. Thanks for this giveaway and please count me in.
