Live Good.

This post is dedicated to my ‘first niece’ Rachel.   She turns 18 soon and graduates from High School and is off to to my alma mater in the fall, Kansas State University. 

I bought her a book (which I will hide a nice check in a page somewhere?) awhile ago.  The kind of book I love for its design, its color, its inspiration.

It’s called Live Good.  Here are a few of my favorite pages:

Settle for More:  
“There is more in us thatn we know.  If we can be made to see it, perhaps, for the rest of our lives, we will be unwilling to settle for less.”  -Kurt Hahn

Do What You Love: 
“Is the life I’m living the life that wants to live in me?”   -Parker Palmer

Listen To Your Heart: 
“The mind determines what’s possible.  The heart surpasses it.” –Pilar Coolinta

 

Happy Birthday Day Rachel!   Congratulations Rachel!!

  1. What a wonderful gift! I also love to give books as gifts and hide checks in them. I thought I was the only one! I gave one to one of my neices once and apparently she put off reading it for a while…then more than six months later, I got a call that she found the check but the bank would no longer cash it for her because too much time had passed since the date of the check. Ooops! I felt a little bad, had to be an enbarrassing call for her, but she did read the book and I was happy to replace the check.

    I read a story once about an wealthy old man who gave bibles as wedding presents to the much younger generations of his extended family as they married, but he always filled the pages with several strategically placed $100 bills. I though that was so clever and have been giving money in books ever since!
