Overview

Thirty-five of the world’s best-selling writers reveal their deepest, most profound moments of gratitude and joy in this beautiful keepsake volume.

Through this compilation of poignant essays, drawn from Good Housekeeping’s popular “Blessings” column, beloved authors such as Maeve Binchy, Jodi Picoult, Kate Jacobs, and Luanne Rice take us into their hearts. Each one shares a special moment when she became aware of exactly how blessed she is—because of someone’s kindness and generosity, because of a family’s love, because she has so much in a world where others sometimes have so little.

These personal stories remind us just how lucky we are—making this the perfect gift book for anyone who wants to stay connected to what’s truly important in life.

The emotionally powerful essays include:

- People Who Live in Glass Houses Shouldn’t Throw Stones: Alice Hoffman realizes what her misfit mom—whom she long resented for not being “normal”—taught her about tolerance

- Sacrifice Play: Sascha Zuger recalls how her father traded one of his most precious assets just to make her smile again

- Mad About the Boy: Seen-and-heard-it-all gossip columnist Liz Smith meets her newborn godson…and her life fills with a brightness she hadn’t known was missing
