Chicken Soup for the Soul ~ Tough Times, Tough People Closed

2 lucky readers will win
Chicken Soup for the Soul
Tough Times, Tough People!


I really enjoy reading Chicken Soup for the Soul Books! And I actually was having a very, very bad day these books came in. I just got back from taking my youngest daughter to the hospital for testing for chronic urinary infections. My husband was up in the attic when I got home fixing the satellite wires. Then he tells me I think we have Chinese drywall. WHAT?!?!? Our home has been professionally inspected and we do. This all started last Thursday. My builder is no longer in business to help and my homeowners insurance can not help. Long story short drywall from China can make you sick (which we experience), and make your appliances, electronic, air conditioner eventually fail. And this can not be fixed until your house is gutted.

Anyways....... I got this new Chicken Soup for the Soul ~ Tough Times, Tough People book in that day. I said mommy needs some mommy time. Decided to take a long bath with my book. I needed encouragement. This book did give me inspiration and encouragement. My favorite chapter was "Silver Linings" this book could not have arrived on my doorstep in better timing!

Here is some information about the book:

"Tough times won’t last, but tough people will. Many people have lost money and many are losing their jobs, homes, or at least making cutbacks. Many others have faced life-changing natural disasters, such as hurricanes and fires, as well as health and family difficulties. Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People is all about overcoming adversity, pulling together, making do with less, facing challenges, and finding new joys in a simpler life. The stories in this book will remind us that we are all going through tough times but we are tough people and we will survive."

Soup for the Soul Publishing, LLC, June 2009, 978-1-935096-35-1, $14.95
