A real woman. A real life. Real stories.

My oldest has a form of Down Syndrome that less than 10% in the world have. She & I both were thrown into a life with isolation's I never thought existed in today's world. Even before this precious girl was brought into my life I have been asked time & time again to write a book about the '"soap opera" life I have had. A running joke has always been that if you've never heard of something happening to a person then come see me! I've either seen it, lived it, or I'm waiting for it to happen. So I invite you to take a ride on my never-ending roller coaster of a life to laugh, maybe learn something new, want to help shed light on things, and maybe even cry. Curve balls have made up my life but they have yet to strike me out.

BOOKS TO READ

I am a certified book nerd and proud of it. A dream job for me would be a Librarian. Seriously! I don't have a specific type of book that I read. If a book title and synopsis can catch my attention then I will read it. From fiction to biography or history. Nothing is off limits if it intrigues me with its description. I will feature ones I read here. Feel free to take a look and I hope I can bring others onto the reading wagon!

 

WHEN BREATH BECOMES AIR

Have Tissues Ready

I just finished this book by Paul Kalanithi. He was a neurosurgeon who was diagnosed with stage 4 bone cancer and the kicker is that he was just in his mid-thirties. This book is a wonderful personal account on how instead of falling into despair he used every moment he had left to live his life with no regrets. Fantastic human life story of conquering the reality of the inevitability of death and how you don't have to live as if your dying. Pretty much like the Tim McGraw song "Live Like You Were Dying" this man did in an exceptional way. It wasn't exciting per say but it was real and in the end you find yourself smiling. Fantastic!
