Excellent Sources...I'm printing this off Another really good book is called: REAL MOMENTS by Barbara D'Angelis. This book really touched my heart and soul and taught me the importance of living in the moment! Something that many of us have a really hard time doing. Just thought I would add. Thanks for the list ladies!!!
