“Katherine knew it was wrong that African Americans didn't have the same rights as others--as wrong as 5+5=12“
“wrong“ - Ida B
“wrong was everywhere“ The Underneath
I enjoyed the first 3rd of the read. It began to drag on to have quite a “tweenie romance” flavor as the pages turned. Half way through not only did their journey lose direction but so did the story. However it was certainly worth finishing for the letter that takes up the last three pages. It felt empowering and quite fitting for my current life reflections. The letter summed up the spirit of the story or perhaps the purpose, meaningfully indeed.
I enjoyed the first third of this book very much. It began to drag on and, though not at the start, it began to have quite a “tweenie romance” flavor to it as the pages turned.

Found a digital copy of this one. Wanted to take a photo of the cover before I release it into a little library. I like this cover
Positive qualities or traits of each role of the drama triangle:
- reflects our goodness
- reflects our sensitivity
- reflects our compassion
= a fantastic way to give ourselves love is simply to take time to be grateful for all the wonder and blessings around us!
Gratitude is a magic elixir in which to fill our cups!
(Deborah‘s Story : M.J. Ryan)
(Fill My Cup : Teal Swan)
Is this a quote, a blurb, or a blurb with two quotes?! I believe it is ALL of the above.
(PG. 246) This story is about the unfolding experience and transformational value of forgiveness. The process is incredibly powerful, you‘ll know this the entire way through but only at the end will you REALIZE it.
Reading Ida B is a magical gift crafted for your inner child and especially one to share with your children.
I would like to go back through The Help and make note of all the historical perspectives and publicity figures such as....
• Martin Luther King‘s Influence
• Tea to Cure Homosexuality
• Cigarettes Are Deadly Commercials
• Adjusting Springs on a Vehicle Seat
• Patsy Cline
“What does all this have to do with mornings? Oh, just everything. Stories are loved day by day. How we start matters. Our day in and day out choices are the pieces that build the mosaic of our lives and while they don‘t always seem important or beautiful up close, when we put them all together and step back we can see the masterpiece unfolding.” -Hello Mornings
They didn‘t know my story, but God did. The great redeemer was redeeming my story.
“I learned to fall at his feet first. I learned to let him fill me before I tried to fill anyone else.”
Reminds me of Teal Swan‘s quote in the picture above.
• Meyer‘s Briggs Personality Test!
Ida B is already (PG.155/246) an all time favorite of mine. I will most certainly be reading it for years to come!! I cannot get enough of this little girl or the soulful messages Katherine Hannigan has surely conjured from her heart, the human spirit, and the world around her. Invaluable wisdom and rich somatic experiences shared beautifully through the character of Ida B and her story.
I am so deeply grateful for this piece of literature.
