- We're joining our friends at the @petaledpail in the 10 day GRATITUDE challenge! For day five, we were prompted to post a photo of someone who inspires us. Eight years ago, I found myself a single mama of three when I made the brave and scary decision to become a small business owner. Of course, I have been extremely fortunate to have had the unwavering support of the community that makes up our little bookstore family, but I've had no bigger cheerleaders than my two extraordinary daughters. They have always inspired me to model independence, strength, kindness, and resilience. Now that they have grown into the fierce, wickedly smart, creative, and kind young women they are, my greatest hope is that they will follow their hearts and discover work that will be as gratifying and soul nurturing as what I've enjoyed with Afterwords Books. #edwardsville #glencarbon #saythankseveryday #petaledpailgratitude #gratitudechallenge #girlpower
