I finished a book at last.

Strange is our situation here upon earth.  Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to divine a purpose.  From the standpoint of daily life however, there is one thing we do know — that man is here for the sake of other men.
-Albert Einstein

I finished the book.  In my own words, it’s message: Society would have us believe that we find purpose and happiness in consumerism.  Earning, buying, getting.  But real purpose and happiness comes from service and close family relationships. 

I think I’ve always known that, but this book was a good reminder and a real-life example of a family who had a lot, and gave up a lot, and grew very close in the process. 

I declare myself inspired. 

Now maybe I can finish those other inspiring books that remain partially read.
