Does anyone remember the part in the movie "Little Women" when Jo, upon completing her novel, ties up her manuscript and tucks a flower into it?
Well, I didn't write a novel, but I did finish working on my business tax expenses for last year. Here they are in chronological order, categorized, and entered into an excel spreadsheet. It's a little summary of all the work I've put into my business last year, so like Jo, I tied my expense receipts with a ribbon, inserted a piece of boxwood (no fresh flowers around), and left it in my sweet husband's office so he can prepare our taxes. To reward myself, for a job well done, I took extra time off to read this novel.
Actually, I found it hard to put down and finished it in less than two days. I loved it and was happy to hear it was made into a movie which will be premiering in August. "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett, a wonderful story filled with unforgettable characters.
