If, like me, you are tired of repeating the same painful patterns from the past, this book is for you. It is an intimate portrait of me, my divorce and my parenting. Raw and uncensored, it is a rare glimpse into the reality of growth and change. I am sharing my journey in the hope that it will help you find your own peace. I am utterly honest and exposed, giving an account of my life from my own internal perspective. The unadorned soul of a woman is rarely seen. This is my gift to you. It is all I have to give. I pray that it will serve you well, leading you to your true self, to peace.
About the Author
I live in a small Midwestern town where I was born and raised. I have two wonderful children, and now a third through my son’s marriage. For most of my adult life I have been the sole parent, supporting us by cutting hair. Somewhere along the way I felt called to write. It is not often that we get a glimpse into the life of an ordinary person just trying to do her best with what life has given her. These words are my attempt to do that. It is time for us to look more closely into the nature of life itself, to see the extraordinary in the ordinary, that every moment is a gift, every circumstance intended to help us grow and deepen, and that each person we come across is an honored guest in our present reality. If the human race is to survive, we must choose to come together in peace and harmony, as one. The spiritual teacher, Eckhart Tolle once said, “There is no other, there is only me.” Through the words I write, I hope you and I are joined, that we come to love and cherish each other in a deeper and more meaningful way. As one, let us recreate our world in a new and higher form
