Chicken Soup for the Soul- Tough Times, Tough People GIVEAWAY!! (CLOSED)

This giveaway is now CLOSED! Congratulations to jmintuck and Waiting for a little Reker for winning.


Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People

101 Stories about Overcoming the Economic Crisis and Other Challenges

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.

MY REVIEW

Tough Times, Tough People is full of uplifting stories. I love that the stories are short so you can pick up and read when you have a few free minutes. I enjoyed the variety of stories as well. This would make an excellent gift.

I am originally from New York (NOT New York City). In 1990 we moved to Virginia, because my husband wanted to live on water or NEAR it actually. So we have waterfront property and it's beautiful. Of course being a "Northerner" and a "Yankee" I wasn't too welcome here. But I stuck it out and now there are probably still people who don't like me, but I have lots of friends, too. I always stick it out when the going gets rough...and it WAS rough, moving here, not knowing anyone, and wishing SOMEONE would welcome me. But I'm tough! I made it. Now we are here almost 20 years.

We live 10 miles from "anywhere". It's a long drive when you just need a bottle of milk! We've learned to consolidate our plans, so we don't do that trip TOO often. But as we are aging, we are thinking we should move closer to a town, to avoid all that driving. Im 82 years old and married 60 years.

We live between Petersburg and Richmond. It's pretty here and there are plenty of places to volunteer if you get homesick, as I did, or if you just lost your spouse and NEED to feel needed again. I volunteer at Hospice, and while I visited patients, now I am in the office, doing things there that need to be done. I also sing with the Southernaires, a group of retirees who just LOVE to sing. And we visit nursing homes and asst. living, and church groups etc. WONDERFUL way to escape your loneliness. Only trouble is, NOW I'm so involved I never have ANY time anymore.

The county of Chesterfield is doing a good job getting people to recycle. They pick up every other week, and we can dump everything in one box that they supply. We usually put all the newspapers in a paper bag but everything else goes in one lump. It makes me feel good to know we are helping our Grandchildren.

We live on Lake Chesdin. It's a lovely lake, manmade, and is part of the Appomatox River, dammed up. Once they did THAT, then the builders got busy and made developments with water front property. We were So lucky to get in at the beginning. We had a choice of many properties, and feel we picked the best one.

The city nearest to us (10 miles away!) is Colonial Heights. It used to be a tiny place, but once they put a huge shopping mall there, it has grown tremendously.

Fort Lee isn't too far from where we live. They are closing a lot of forts, and moving those people to Fort Lee. So they have constructed a LOT of new buildings to house all these men and women and families.

Richmond and Petersburg are very historical places. A LOT of the Civil War was fought in this area. Unfortunately, there are people here who are STILL fighting the Civil War. Too bad..but once you are aware of that, you learn to steer clear of that subject when chatting with people. The younger ones are OK, but the older ones still hang on to the old biases.

I live near Chicago and I absolutely love the city. Did you know that they reversed the flow of the Chicago River in the 1800s because the pollution of the city was flowing into Lake Michigan? Kind of crazy when you think about it!
