Item description for Some Things You Just Have To Live With: Musings On Middle Age by Barbara Crafton...
Overview Everybody figures it out sooner or later: Even in a Botox world that promises eternal youth, some things-from aches and pains to wrinkles, from menopause to the empty nest-you just have to live with. But despite the challenges, those who are reaching middle age-yesterday's Baby Boomers-might not want to turn back the clock. Instead, as their bodies change and their priorities shift, they're looking to cull wisdom from their experience and find spiritual meaning in their re-examined lives. In Some Things You Just Have to Live With, author Barbara Cawthorne Crafton explores the "spilled milk" of our lives, the physical changes our bodies endure, and the new and energizing purpose we can discover by plunging into the middle of life in a deeper-and sometimes mystifying-relationship with God. A wonderful storyteller, Crafton writes with humor and pathos rather than a heavy hand, allowing readers to see themselves and their own lives in the unfolding pages. Some Things You Just Have to Live With is a source of inspiration-and smiles-to those navigating the turbulent waters of the middle of life.

Some Things You Just Have to Live With Sep 18, 2003
Rev. Crafton is an extraordinary writer. She opens her soul and invites the reader to examine it. In the process her readers get new insights into their own souls. She helps her readers to understand that joys, fears, anxieties, hope, and all the aspects that make us human, are shared by others. We are not alone. While her topics are profound, her writing style is easy to read. As she writes of events in her life and how they've affected her, I found myself nodding and thinking "yes, I've felt that." In every story in this wonderful book I felt that I was reading about myself as much as about Rev. Crafton. This book is for anyone who is middle age, has passed middle age, or expects to ever be middle age. It is a book to be read again and again, as each reading provides comfort, reassurance, and an understanding that we are all in this life together and we're all human and that God's love is freely given to all of us.
