One of my clients invited me to her bridal shower and I thought long and hard about what to give her as a gift. Of course, you should ALWAYS give something off of the registry, but a personal gift is always nice too.
Then I thought back to a gift that I was given when I got married, and just knew I should pass on the wisdom from my dear friend. My girlfriend, Monica, is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in St. Louis, MO. She happens to swear by a particular book, and has suggested it to clients, and friends. It's called, "The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work." It's by John M. Gottman. The book is helpful to those both in a relationship trying to correct things, and to those soon to be married, or just married.
Throughout the relationship industry, this book comes highly recommended... therapists, counselors, and Oprah all agree, it's a must have reference book.
Then I got thinking about books in general and what great gifts they can make. The best books I have ever read have all been given to me, or were 'on loan.' I wondered out to my favorite bookstore, Anthology Book Co. in downtown Loveland, CO to search for this book, and they had a couple copies--- both new, and used! (Don't you just love independent, locally owned book stores!)
I can't help but get lost in all the possibilities of books I could read to better myself, learn more, or get lost in!
What better gift to give and to pass on than a book purchased with love?!?
