I have read some of Barbara Johnson's works over the years, and she is always a delight to read. She brings to light simple truths with a bit of humor, that I think all of us could use more of. I enjoy her daily "quips".
I was very disappointed in the calendar. It isn't a way to "laugh yourself out of the gloomies" at all. Very little humor, more a combination of positive thoughts and tongue in cheek comments on life. I'd expected Maxine; it's not anywhere close.
I bought these for two friends. I have three of Barbara Johnson's daily calendars and am only sorry that I cannot find any of the other two to also give as gifts. In August, I was facing surgery and her Godly humor got me through what could have been a very stressful time.
