There is nothing like a steaming bowl of chicken soup to cure what ails you. This healing marvel, homemade with tender loving care, is often ladled up with homespun words of wisdom. Today is Chicken Soup for the Soul Day, observed annually on November 12.
Over twenty years ago, a series of books began gracing bookstore shelves. They warmed our hearts and enriched our lives with tales of inspiration, lessons of wisdom and heartfelt anecdotes. Some of the most important teachings in life can be learned from within the pages of these books.
Curling up on the couch with a warm mug filled with hot liquid and a good read is tried-and-true therapy for healing our bodies and souls. Celebrate Chicken Soup for the Soul Day by resurrecting your mom’s recipe. Then wrap yourself in the warmth of soup, a blanket and one or two of the books that inspired the occasion.
