Relyn, thank you for making my morning again with your Friday Faves. I loved the short film. You enrich my life so much by finding these treasures to share.

I also appreciate your review of The Book Thief. I bought the book because it was story of the Holocaust. Like you, I've read many, many other books dealing with this topic. I read two, maybe three pages and was horrified when I encountered Death telling the story. I slammed the book closed and never picked it up again until I finally picked it up to put in a donation bag for the Goodwill. I have never, ever, not read at least the first chapter of a book.

Also, loved reading the story of your marriage. You have been blessed. God is good.

Have a wonderful weekend.
