Promises to Keep is a book full of surprises and insight. Roz, the main character says that “bad memories are weeds and the good memories are flowers.” However, Tillie, who is older and wiser believes that every moment of every hour is precious: “I ask God to help me remember the forgotten moments, and he always brings something good to mind…People look at greatness in the extraordinary and completely overlook the ordinary. That’s why those moments are all forgotten, counted as nothing. It’s a terrible loss.” One of the reasons to love this book is that it teaches us to embrace every day the Lord has given us.
We had 8 beautiful ladies to join us at our Book Club on Saturday, March 23, 2013. Of course everyone had a wonderful time of fellowship while eating a delicious breakfast that everyone contributed to and then we had a great discussion of Promise to Keep by Ann Tatlock. (Unfortunately, our photographer that has a tripod (me) was not able to attend, so Carmen was not in the picture…she was behind the camera.)
