    Loved it!

    I thought this book was amazing. I've used some of the ideas mentioned in the book with my mom friends and our relationships are closer than ever. I even tore out one of the Wishes from the back of the book and took it to the office with me. It's now attached to cork board. Do yourself a favor, read and share.
