This book is about my moments of self-doubt, clarity, joy, and sadness. It is about the times when I was a caregiver for an aging parent, a student, a wife, and a full-time employee.
Some of the days were dark, and I thought I would never again see the light. Some of the days carried so much inspiration and joy that I thought my heart would explode. I have cried many tears and laughed until my face hurt. I have gone on this journey as we all do-with a bit of stubbornness and a whole lot of self-doubt.
I would like to say that I have been triumphant in all my ventures, but the truth is many of them have been failures. The most important thing I have learned is that all of them have helped me to grow. The mistakes I made are now memories etched in the foundation of my life. Each one means something and has made me the person I am today. I was never a writer until now. I never dabbled in poetry and had no inclination to keep a journal, but after a few words of encouragement, so began my journey.
Favorite Book of the Year!
This is an amazing, comforting book compiled of beautiful experiences that all of us are feeling at one time or another in our lives. Helps to see how so much good can be found even in our experiences we sometimes find not so beautiful. This book radiates love and support for everyone of us on so many levels. Can feel her intention to heal others all the way down to your soul! Just LOVE it!! Will definitely be giving out some for holiday gifts, too 🙂 Thank you! ~Sheryl
