And it is hard to do. Hard to focus so I can pray for the elderly folks in the nearby assisted living residence who came for the weekly Communion service at which my daughter volunteered as a greeter and who are now locked in place for their safety; the people who are dying; my year-old grandson kept at home in isolation because he needs a kidney transplant, not a coronavirus; various relatives who have fallen from the Faith.
My granddaughter finally got a Confirmation date later this month. We went to a retreat Mass awhile ago and I wonder what she really learned about anything in these last two years of preparation. She and I have to show up an hour before the Mass for a briefing on what to do, hand washing, masking, etc.
That path begins with prayer, making Pentecost stay with us not just for one day but tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow. Reasonable excerpts may be reposted so long as it is linked to this page.

The characters were believable, it was I did not want to feel "sorry" for "Lulu. I can see why the author wrote some of the actions in the story, I just did not agree with all the actions.
I will suggest this book to some of my young adult readers, I just won't finish the rest of the series really soon. Great writing, just not my cup of tea.

I bought this book for my birthday, It came a month later, but I loved it. Really good story, most wonderful by coming all 3 books in Just One. Love it. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries.
Beautiful story! Great read!! Report abuse. These books are so lovely and so well written, perfect for a summer read, they made me smile a lot! All good, thanks! A good old traveling book with the most romantic story ever! It's one of the few books that I picked up on release day and read during its release week, so that obviously says a lot about its appeal.
And it tells a story that it appears most of us can relate to, based on the reactions from most of the book bloggers I know. This book has wormed its way into my heart, leaving a lasting impression - and I know that it's going to be a book that I revisit and savor time and time again. The reason that this story resonated with me so much comes simply in the form of its main character - Allyson. It's not a secret that I often identify with characters in the books I read, but Allyson definitely takes the cake!
Allyson is definitely me. It's almost as if Gayle Forman decided to ride along in my thoughts and write down whatever she experienced. The different facets of who Allyson was and who she became - I could definitely see myself reflected in them. I shared the same rigid, controlled, careful nature when I was younger, trying to do what was right and what was expected of me. And, like Allyson, there was this one moment in my life - moving to the US in which, like Allyson's Europe trip, was my parents' idea - that opened me up to a whole new set of experiences.
These experiences, in turn, led to a spark that inspired a transformation in who I was. It took some time for me to readjust my perception of who I was and what I wanted to do, but it eventually got a point where I settled comfortably into the me I am right now. Watching Allyson go through the same journey in this book was a comfort, a treat and a total out-of-body experience since half the time I felt like going, "I've been there.
I've felt that way. I know how that goes. Well, the setting is definitely one of them. Paris has been calling to me to come and visit for quite some time now, and I really, really hope I get to do it sometime soon. The way Paris is brought to life in this book is beautiful. There's not a big focus on the touristy Paris, but rather on Paris as it actually is in day-to-day life.
Considering the limited time frame that this setting is given in the book, I commend the author for doing an impeccable job in making me feel like I was immersed in the busy streets and little side paths right along with Allyson and Willem.
I also loved that the author set part of the book during Allyson's first year of college. There's certainly a lack of books at least in my reading pile! It brought me right back to my first year in college - the new friendships, adjusting to living away from home, learning what classes would suit me and what wouldn't. The authenticity just made me the slightest bit nostalgic for my college days though I definitely do not miss the studying!
Allyson's friends, both old and new, were also essential people in the journey she takes. From the best friend that she has to learn to grow with especially when they go to separate schools to the new friends she gains along the way, each and every single one plays a part. My particular favorite is Dee, mostly because he's a very unique character, provides a quirkiness and humor to certain situations and because he proves himself to be a true friend to Allyson throughout it all.
I suppose Willem is a very important part of this book, as it is her encounter with him that changes everything for Allyson. However, and this is not necessarily a bad thing, I honestly do not know how I feel about him. This is mostly because I don't know his side of the story. He seemed enchanting and charming and lively and adventurous to me when he first appears, but little by little, the facts that creep in started adding to my suspicions and doubts about who he is and what he's like.
Even though we learn a few surprising things about him towards the latter part of the book, I find that I'm still conflicted about how to feel about him. Hopefully, of course, that changes when we read about what happened to him in the next novel! I have come to two very important conclusions after reading this book: 1 Everyone and I mean just about everyone has an experience that changes them for the rest of their lives. Most of the CD's and groups are entertaining and enjoyable.
Almost every song is a top 10 hit. Yes that's right, every song has a strong basic melody, great mixing, incredible vocals from Ms. Sozzi that it makes this Golden CD definitely in my top 10 of all time. Whoever actually wrote the songs knows what they are doing. They have a basic nature to them without being too simplistic. The electronic rhythms and beats seem basic at times, but the measures and notes are written so well all that negative stuff doesn't effect the CD.
The Intermezzos that come inside some songs are great, and for many great songs they include these breaks. At times, dissonance occurs to great effect as well. Kim's voice and singing is great too. She has a nice range with lots of energy and passion. This is something that many women in the genre miss.
They seem tentative and unconfident and it's a subtle critique. Kim sings with heart and the songs that are chosen highlight her style and range. She even has a little squeak and slight "scratchiness" to her voice which is a nice extra to her passionate singing."Just One Day" (하루만) is a song by BTS.
