The whole premise of this book is always look on the bright side of things. Through quotes, her own personal anecdotes, and just good common sense advice, Addie Johnson gives the reader uplifting messages. One such piece of advice is to do the things we enjoyed doing as children: Jumping Jacks, splashing in mud puddles, anything to relive that joy you felt as a child. Sometimes the things to cheer one up are simple things such as listening to the music of your parents generation. I often do that, when I miss my parents. I’ll listen to some of the old Gospel songs they used to sing, or some of the old Big Band numbers such as Benny Goodman. It somehow makes them seem close again. Other things are weekly date nights, never go to bed angry with your spouse.

While there was nothing profound in this book, I liked it. It was a good little book of celebrating and being happy. I think it might be a good spirit booster for those in hospitals, or having gone through a loss. It’s just a good little gift book, and I think that’s probably the best audience for it, are those needing some small gift to take someone. Take a look at this book, it may fit the bill.
