Chicken Soup for the Horse Lover's Soul II: Inspirational Tales of Passion, Achievement and Devotionby Jack Canfield Mark Victor Hansen Marty Becker Peter Vegso Theresa Peluso Teresa Becker
You Know You're A Horse Lover When ... If you won a snazzy new sports car in the lottery you'd trade it in for a pickup truck with a towing package. Your paycheck barely covers your food bill but all your horses eat premium foods. All the other girls were designing their dream home, you were designing your dream barn. You spend far more on your riding clothes than on the rest of your wardrobe. You call the vet when a horse just looks cross-eyed but a family member has to be on their death bed before you take them to see the doctor. Your barn is cleaner than your house. You are better at braiding your horse's tail than your daughter's hair. You've stopped at more stables than museums while on vacation. You cringe at paying five bucks for lunch but don't blink at spending twenty or thirty on a riding lesson. You can't eat a carrot or apple without feeling guilty about not sharing it with your horse. Your significant other says, "It's me or the horses," and you hesitate . . . You pay more to board your horses than you do for your hotel room.

What Any Mother of a Preschooler Needs (Besides a Week at a Spa!) Does your car CD collection range from The Best of Rock-n-Roll Classics to The Best of Barney? Does your idea of a good dinner out mean crayons and paper placemats for all? Can hearing the words, "I love you, Mommy" make your whole day? Then chances are good that you are not only a mother of a preschooler (or soon-to-be one), but that you are in need of some laughter, inspiration and camaraderie from other women who've been there. Let's face it: Our little bundles of joy and boundless energy don't come with instructions, and every mom undoubtedly thinks at one time or another: "Am I doing this right?!" In this uplifting collection, you'll find true stories about the day-to-day minutiae and miracles of being the mom to a preschooler: from finding peace and purpose in what can seem (and look!) like chaos; from solving sibling rivalry to celebrating sibling revelry; from the sorrow of letting go to enjoying some personal independence as your "big kid" goes off to school. Included are stories from well-known MOPS speakers, Lisa Moffitt and Rochelle Nelson. In just a few minutes of alone time these stories will give mothers of preschoolers a place to release the stresses of their day, connect with other moms who they can relate to and evoke much-needed laughter. Like only Chicken Soup can, these stories will rekindle your sense of self and spirit, and remind you how to enjoy this precious period of time in your life.
A Tribute to Mothers Your gentle guidance has immeasurably influenced all that I have done, all that I do, and all that I will ever do.

And so it is that when I help my neighbor, your helping I land is there also. When I ease the pain of a friend, she owes a debt to you. When I show a child a better way, either by word or by example, You are the teacher once removed. Because everything I do reflects values learned from you, any wrong that I right, any heart I may brighten, any gift that I share, or burden I may lighten, is in its own small way a tribute to you.
