I would love to hear from you! Sharing Saturday with you.
A Jewel: Be kind. Period. My husband’s father used to say, “It is just as easy to be nice as it is to be mean.” He’s right – be nice. You never know the backstory of the human being next to you. Why are mean people mean? I don’t care. I try to be nice anyway.
Treat people the way you want to be treated.
A Gem: Reviews on the book A Prisoner by No Crime of My Own are coming in. They make my heart sing and my eyes drip dew. These beautiful words came in from one reviewer:
5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding expose of unspeakable evil and the courage it took to overcome! Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on May 17, 2023
The author is a very eloquent writer who is able to convey the unspeakable abuse and horror she experienced at the hands of her abusers in a way that the reader can genuinely understand.
This was very difficult to read for me, not because of how the book was written because it is written very well. What made this book so hard to read was because so many of her experiences and many of the things she did to cope with the fallout from them mirrored far too many of my own.
While this book is traumatic in the extreme I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to understand in some small way what goes through the heart and mind of a child who is forced to endure the unendurable.
This is the wind beneath my wings. I write for you. I write for me.
Metaphorical Gunpowder: I don’t always like God’s timing but I know it is perfect!
