This month’s book is the perfect book for the busy Mom, or someone who doesn’t have time to sit and read for long periods of time. The Gift of Friendship is a book of small stories and real life tales of friendship from a group of your favorite writers and bloggers:

These women share their favorite memories of times with their closest friends. Heartwarming and beautiful reminders that friends are important in every stage and season of life. Whether our houses are a mess, or our lives are turned upside down. The best friends will be there to help you fold the laundry and put the pieces back together.
They share how sometimes a chance meeting with a stranger turns into a beautiful friendship. Or how a one time meeting taught them how to be a great friend again. About a time when someone took the time to write them a note, drop off a meal, or volunteer to babysit- a reminder that the best gifts in life cost nothing.
The best friends are the ones who are there, living life beside us. In the trenches with us. Holding our hands and speaking life to us.
So, grab a a cup of coffee, curl up on the couch, and take a few minutes to read a chapter. They’re short and sweet, only 2-4 pages. You can sneak little snippets in, in just a few moments a day. Your heart will be warmed, and your soul will be filled. And you’ll have the urge to call your best friend on the phone and thank them for being there.
This book would make a great gift for a good friend, a new mom who needs to be reminded about friendship, or someone who love to read and just can’t find the time. The mom life leaves little room for reading, but sometimes it can be balm for the soul.
