Mattie has done another GR8 job with this book! Mattie has such a special way of expressing true Love and Happiness. Those who have never 'felt' Love and/or Happiness can find it thru Mattie's poems. Mattie is definitely an inspiration to all whether young or old. His books/tapes can put a smile on anyone's face. Congratulations on your success, Mattie! Thank you for helping me feel better about myself and life.
There is nothing more pure or more precious than a child. They give so much of themselves, unconditionally, and can teach all of us a little bit more about the true meaning of life and love. They are a gift straight from heaven, sent here to bless the lives of those they touch. This book will touch and bless many as I am sure it will be enjoyed for years to come. The words are pure and they reach straight into the heart.
Mattie teaches us once again that love from a child's perspective is pure and innocent. From the mouths of babes... this is sound wisdom that is echoed in the pages of a new book titled The Gravel Drive, in which a man learns about love through the eyes of his son. I recommend both books highly. Thank you, Mattie!
