Review of: ‘Holy Cannoli! Chick-E Gets a Job’ by Mona Schmitt
Premise: On Chick-E’s walk home from school, she decides she wants to get a job. There’s a “Help Wanted” sign at one of the local restaurants – Mama Romano’s Italian restaurant. As quick as she applies for the job, she gets it. She was so excited for her first night. One of her table’s was a couple that was sucking face all night. The other table was a family of five where the twin boys did not take well to Chick-E. Just like any book, something bad happens. (I won’t tell you what – don’t want to ruin the surprise!) Chick-E learns a very big lesson – “You cannot be good at everything. Sometimes you have to fail at something and that’s okay, but you have to keep trying.”
Thoughts: This is an adorable children’s book…definitely a great read for a child! You can’t not like the book (Need to be a somewhat mature child due to some content of the book…Chick-E’s bra is mentioned along with a couple kissing, multiple times.) The book is full of many adjectives that depicts a very vivid picture in one’s mind. What a child will take from this book is very important – go for what you want, never give up, make the best out of a bad situation, and most of all – just love life! A wonderful book for a child to read to remember how you sometimes need to look at a situation in a different light. Two thumbs up!
You painted no Madonnas
on chapel walls in Rome
But with a touch divine
you lived one in your home
You wrote no lofty poems
that critics counted art
But with a nobler vision
you lived them in your heart
You carved no shapeless marble
into some high soul design
But with a finer sculpture
you shaped this soul of mine
You built no great cathedrals
that centuries applaud
But with a grace exquisite
your life cathedraled God
Had I the gift of Raphael
or that of Michelangelo
Oh, what a rare Madonna
my mother’s life would show
Thank you Frances Johansan

I just started my own business, and I did not realize how hard it was going to be to get customers. I am an attorney with five years experience, and I thought that word of mouth would be enough to get me clients. I assumed that my years of hard work at my old firm had made me well known around town, but I am quickly learning that marketing is a very important part of being a business owner. After searching for and getting internet service from one of the clear wireless internet providers. I started a web marketing campaign. My wife suggested it after talking to a few of her friends who are also business owners. I had no idea that it would be so expensive to advertise. I wish I would have done more research about what this would cost me before leaving my job to start my own office. I probably would have stayed for a few more months and saved more money. I only looked at the costs of operating my business and had a very small budget for marketing.
Dear heavenly Father,
I sit here on this morning with my heart pounding for your anointing.
I want nothing more today than your presence …for I know in your presence everything is made whole.
I glorify your name heavenly Father and worship you. I sing praises to your holy name.. Jesus.
I thank you in advance for granting me this day Lord much favor. Keep me safe and I rebuke any sickness or disease by my family and my body.
Your are my deliverer, my Poppa, my redeemer.
Thank you Jesus for this day.
