"help thanks wow"

my take: anne lamott is my soul-sister twin born from another mother. in her latest work she gives the shortcut words to her prayer life: help, thanks, and wow. it's a very small book that deserves more than one reading.

i initially read it with an eye to my ladies in addiction recovery ... anne is a recovering alcoholic and that can speak to my ladies in ways other authors can not. what i discovered, though, of course, are gems of wisdom for myself.

anne writes in a raw and real way. vulnerable is the hallmark of an anne lamott nonfiction work. some may say self-focused ... but i think she believes what she learns of God, truth, love, justice, peace, wonder, neediness, and gratitude she is bound to share with others.

my source: facebook notifications - i'm friends with anne. although my 17 year-old would say i'm just a fan. not so.

my verdict: great read on prayer and life. yes, read!
