‘Over Salad and Hot Bread: What an Old Friend Taught Me About Life’ by Mary Jenson

“What do we live for, if it is not to make the world less difficult for each other.” George Eliot

This book is ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’ for women. It is about the gift of friendship between two very different women. There is no fluff in this book and lots of everyday wisdom. There are real issues and stories of faith, love, and hope.

What I appreciated most  was a bit of a remedy towards being a worried control freak. Get yourself “out of yourself”, be interested in others, and try to make your first reaction be thankfulness. An attitude change can move from deliberate to automatic over time. “When our minds are filled with ways to be a blessing, we have no time to dwell on our personal problems. It gives God an opportunity to work on them for us.”

Mary Jenson is a friend of a friend in England, so I met her at my house, where we chatted Over Tea and Chocolate. That is how I learned about her book. Thank you Mary! I did enjoy it. In writing it you have allowed Nancy’s mentoring to bless many others.
