Papa's Pearls is a book that is an exemplary heritage to this
family. It is a memoir of Diane Flynn Keith's Father whom she
calls "Papa". Papa grew up  during the depression era. It was
interesting to read about his life and beginnings as it matched
up with my 6th grade sons history books from earlier lessons this
year.  He was the son of a boxing promoter and was introduced to
the seeder side of life. Possibly destined to lead of life of crime and
trouble, Papa uses his street smarts to create a new life for himself.
He becomes a successful business owner, real estate  developer,
 loving father, grandfather and husband.

Papa's Pearls is a short memoir of 112 pages long. It is
sprinkled with "Papa's" wisdom like ...

"What's the worst thing that could happen"


"When you fall down - Get back up,
Brush yourself off and try again."


"Ya Gotta do what ya gotta do."


"You don't kick someone when they're down,
you give 'em a hand up."


"What are you waiting for let's go."



 Some of Papa's quotes reminded me of my
own family members since passed on. Papa sounds like he was
such a wonderful and encouraging man. Thank you for sharing
him with us Diane. He was a go getter and exuded love through
each page of the book. Each chapter begins with one of "Papas
Pearls" and stories from family that tell of this one mans journey.
As I read I couldn't help but think that what helped make this man
so wonderful and respected by his family was his family.
I had sometime to go over and read from Diane's blog and
found some pictures that she shared of her "Papa"


This would make a nice easy read this summer by the poolside.


Diane Flynn Keith is also known by homeschoolers for her
website Homefires ,Clickschooling,  Universal Preschool,
 and Car Schooling.



Warm Blessings,

Nikki
