Friday Favorite

Editors Summary: From the New York Times bestselling author of The Wednesday Letters and The Cross Gardener, a story of small kindnesses-and life- changing miracles. 

Seventeen seconds can change a life forever. This is what Rex Connor learned on a gorgeous summer afternoon in 1970 when he diverted his gaze for seventeen seconds and tragedy occurred. Forty years later the waves of that day still ripple through the lives of countless people, including his son, Cole.

Cole Connor is a patient teacher, and now he has invited three struggling teenagers to visit him to learn about Rex Connor-and the Seventeen Second Miracle. Together they will learn how Rex Connor could have allowed seventeen seconds to destroy him, but instead he chose to live every day believing the smallest acts of kindness could change the world. Cole's students come to understand miracles can happen-but you must participate in them. A seventeen second miracle can change a life-if you let it.

My Review: ♥ Random Acts of Kindness!!! I just keep thinking about ways to spread the lessons I learned from this book. Can you hold the door for a stranger? Can you smile to another? Can you carry shopping bags for someone else? Give a hug or a kind word to another? It can be so easy... and it can change a life. 

You really never know who you might touch and it doesn't have to take hours or days. I really liked this book. I definitely recommend this book to anyone and everyone. Take the lessons from this book and use them to change a life even if that life is yours. Come on count with me... 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15-16-17... wow that didn't take long. Go grab this book and go change a life!
