Item description for Plant a Geranium in Your Cranium: Sprouting Seeds of Joy in the Manure of Life by Barbara Johnson...
Overview Offering words of support, the bestselling author of "He's Gonna Toot and I'm Gonna Scoot" speaks candidly about her battle with cancer and encourages others in her trademark style.
"I never wanted to be in the cancer survivors club. But, then, I never wanted to be in AARP, either "
Barbara Johnson laughingly lifted millions of readers out of the depths of despair with her book "Stick a Geranium in Your Hat and Be Happy." In that classic volume of humor and encouragement, she shared how God's gift of joy helped her survive the deaths of two sons and the eleven-year estrangement of another son who was lost in the homosexual lifestyle.
Now that same laughter-lined attitude has sustained Barbara during a life-threatening battle with cancer―a battle in which she never lost her bubble of joy. "Plant a Geranium in Your Cranium "is the inspiring yet funny story of Barbara's journey through a year of illness, frustration―and abundant humor. It's a joyful chronicle of her own experiences combined with dozens of hilarious anecdotes and cartoons sent to her by others who share her belief in the healing power of laughter.
