TOS Review: Papa's Pearls
Everyone longs to leave a lasting legacy behind and that is just what Mr Carol Joseph Flynn did! In Papa's Pearls: A Father's Gift of Love and Wisdom to His Children and Grandchildren, Dianne Flynn Keith reminisces and expounds upon her father's great euphemisms and love of life.
A light and heartfelt read, this book immortalizes the "pearls" that Mr Flynn planted in the hearts of those around him. Known to have positively affected not only his family but also his community, Mr Flynn's words resound in even my heart thanks to Mrs Keith's recollections and sweet stories. This book was a delightful read and a much needed reminder.
"You don't kick someone when they're down- you give them a hand up!" "What's the worst thing that could happen?" "I love you. You know that, right?" "You gotta do what you gotta do!" These are all colorful pearl's Mr Flynn sewed deep into the hearts of his family- along with many others. As I read, many sounded familiar to me and I realize that they echo words passed down from my grandfather. What a great plenty that generation had to teach!
Papa's Pearls: A Father's Gift of Love and Wisdom to His Children and Grandchildren is available directly through the author for $14.97 + $7.00 s/h or through Amazon.
