Touched By A Mom(Again) Nov 30, 2005
This review refers to "Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul 2"
The subtitle of this book: "More Stories to Open the Hearts and Rekindle the Spirits of Mothers" is exactly right.Only Scrooge himself, may not be moved in some way by the heartwarming and inspirational stories, recounting life's ups and downs that are to be found here. Part 2 of the Mother's Soul continues to touch your heart and soul.
The stories are short. There are some author's names you'll recognize. Erma Bombeck and George Burns, contribute their memories. But mostly, these are stories of everyday moms, that we can all relate to in some way. If you have a mother,are married to one,or even just know a mother, you will find something in here, that will make you want to go call them. If you are a mother, you will totally relate to these stories. Written by the grown children, the husbands, the best friends, or by mother's themselves. There are true life stories of love and courage, they are humorous, some are sad. You'll laugh, you'll cry! They'll brighten up a dreary day, or make the time pass quickly during that long wait at the Doctor's office.
Subjects range from Christmas Stories and real life Miracles, to Adoption and the questions that come with it, to Special Moments, a mom's special brand of Wisdom, and much more. There are many stories, guaranteed to touch you in some way.
This book would make a great gift for anyone.Whether it be for a co-worker, a friend, or your own mother, they'll love it.Even would make a great treat for yourself. I would also highly recommend it to anyone aspiring to write their own life stories. The stories here, may jog your own memories, and seeing them in a book by everyday people, may inspire you to put your own experiences down on paper.
There's a great many of these Chicken Soup books. One for almost every kind of 'Soul'. Parents, Grandparents, teachers, Divorced People,Teens, The list goes on. I even saw one coming out for the Dog Lovers. Maybe Scrooge COULD find one that suits him!
Happy Holidays to everyone who is a Mom, has a Mom, or knows a mom(I hope that covers everyone!)...enjoy...Laurie
keeps getting better! Aug 31, 2004
Again, another wonderful, tear-jerking, humorous, sweet book filled with true stories about motherhood. You can't go wrong with any Chicken Soup book. I hope there will be many more to come!
Another winner! May 12, 2004
This book is another winner in the Chicken Soup collection. It's a second helping of touching, witty and wry parenting stories that I could relate to. It's also a fast, fun read that I could easily do between naptimes and carpools. Debbie Farmer, parenting author of 'Don't Put Lipstick on the Cat'
ANOTHER TOP-NOTCH BOOK! May 5, 2001
I recently purchased this book for my daughter, also a mother, for her 30th birthday. The book, like all the other "Chicken Soup" books, is filled with writings that will make you smile, bring a tear to your eye, and cause you to reflect upon your own childhood memories of what you either had or perhaps, for whatever reason, did not have in a mother. If you are a mother, yourself, you will relate to the overwhelming love you feel for your children. You will realize how precious and wonderful they are and always will be throughout all the years to come. The book will make you want to hug them... just one more time while they are still yours to hold.
There is something contained in this book for everyone, and written in the typical fashion of pervious books of this nature, each page is a joy to read and incredibly inspiring and heart-warming. For those who have daughters who are also mothers, this book will rekindle that special bond that, every now and then, one takes for granted once they "take wings and leave the nest" to conquer the world on their own. The book speaks of silent thoughts we often neglect to put into words to the children we love so very much. It is a beautiful book!
Wonderful Apr 24, 2001
Another wonderful chicken soup book!!! Full of beautiful heart warming stories and quotes. I enjoyed this book as much as any other of the Chicken Soup books (which is quite a bit). I love the sad, happy, joyful and beautiful stories. Is this book only for mothers though? The answer is definitely no! Dads, grandmas, grandpas, sisters, brothers, anyone whose ever raised and cared for a life younger than them should read this book.
