      I picked this up at a Little Free Library on my walking trail I was familiar with the book, Having Our Say, about these two wonderful 100 year old ladies, but had never read it This is a follow up book of their thoughts on life In this quick, easy, read, I got to experience a bit of what these women were like Glad I decided to take a peak at what was in the Little Free Library that day.

      This is a fun, one sitting one hour read about the Delaney Sisters Both women are over 100 years old and have awesome bits of wisdom to share It was refreshing to read something so positive The book also emphasized the importance of working for what you want rather than feeling that sense of entitlement A good reminder for all ages.
