Inspiration and Comfort In Times of Trouble Sep 30, 2005
This book is full of humor and heart! In a time of serious illness, when the outcome is unknown, we all tread new ground. This book actually maps that ground in the form of a personal diary. The painful feelings that arise--fear and anguish, helplessness and anger--are here, but along with them are wonderful humor and humility, faith and gratitude. I was drawn into the fast pace of this true story immediately. By the time I had finished I decided to buy it for anyone I know who has to deal with a devastating illness and needs inspiration!
