Oh, dear. Although 'snatch' means grab, it also has a vulgar meaning, which means I won't be using it. I confess I'm tired of those with their minds in the gutter ruining perfectly good words. Bah.

I can use 'crony,' since 1660. However, cronyism doesn't show up until 1840.

His Heart's Delight (The Braedon Family Series Book One) by Mary Blayney sweet Regency romance. An enjoyable read. The back and forth between the hero and heroine delighted. I'd like to read the next book in the series.

Happy Valentine's Day

  Valentine Delivery

Time for the third novella in the series...

Welcome back to Holiday, USA, small town America, where nothing happens, except holidays... and maybe a little romance, if the hero and heroine trust God.

Lance Nelson delivers flowers every Valentine's Day. This year, he decides to show the woman he's secretly loved all his life exactly how he feels, creating a unique bouquet especially for her.

This Valentine's Day, Sharon Kelly decides to stop waiting for someone to send her what she wants and orders a bouquet of flowers for herself. She might as well arrange for her secret crush to deliver them.

God works in mysterious ways to provide the way to Happily Ever After, even when His children stand in their own way...

I've never had children and so will never have grandchildren. I've followed Jeff Rab for a while. This is a wonderful letter from a PawPaw to his grandson:

Those with PTSD/CPTSD may suffer similar problems to those with a brain injury. PTSD - Accepting, Coping, Thriving shared the link to a helpful article. I need to remind myself to read it at least once a month.

God bless.

"Outlaw Platoon" by Sean Parnell nonfiction. Not an easy read. He recounts his time with Outlaw Platoon in Afghanistan, in 2006. War is brutal. He stated that battle removed the facades. Some people were dishonorable and some were honorable. In battle, a man couldn't hide what he was. I'm glad I read it. I want to read other books by Parnell.

Muddle can be used as a verb from as early as 1690; however, as a noun, I have to wait until 1818, too late for the story.

Favorite Book Friday

Living with a Seal by Jesse Itzler is about his experience when he hires a Navy SEAL to live with him for a month and train him. At the original printing of the book, the identity of the SEAL wasn't revealed. He was referred to simply as SEAL. If you're easily offended by bad language and rude and crude behavior, this book isn't for you. If you understand the context and accept these men for who they are, you might want to check it out. David Goggins, SEAL, is one of my chosen mentors. I've learned a great deal from listening to interviews with him and following him on social media. I've purchases his recent book, Can't Hurt Me, but wanted to read LwaS first. It was worth it to me.
