Bloom, I am loving this memoir. I cried through the prologue and couldn’t wait to begin reading the rest of the book. I have read Chapter 1 “Waiting” and I am hooked! I love the way Kelle is telling her story, with such honesty and her writing has me feeling her feelings. In addition, it flows. It has a nice pace!! The photos are a great touch too. Onto Chapter 2 “Home”
Anyone else reading? Are you liking it?
I love it too. I just saw the book mentioned in people magazine today. I’m so happy your are enjoying this one. I am already hoked!xo
Wow, I finished this book in no time at all. It was terrific, so touching! I felt she did a great job of focusing on her feelings and not getting all caught up in pushing an agenda, meaning you don’t have to have a child or a child with a handicap or disease to understand her or read it. She did a great job lightening the mood when needed and addressing the ‘I am going to be ignorant’ forever question. I would recommend this book to anyone, it is great life story. You just never know what is going to be thrown your way and how you are going to deal with it? If anything I thought this was a great story of women friendship
This book is so beautiful, thank goodness tears don’t hurt the pages because I have shed a few. Do you have a safety net of friends like Kelle? I always longed for a group of friends like that. People to rallly around you when life throws you a curve ball. Instead I am blessed to be the safety net for others. They know I will catch them when they fall. Sorry I digress..this book is so beautifully written, the photographs add so much to the story too. It is almost like being there.
“Mothers have multiple hearts-one that beats inside them, rhythmically pumping blood up and down, in and out-and one for every child she welcomes” Every Mother (and I think Fathers too) knows those words.Our hearts are filled with love, over flowing, it is hard to believe you can love anyone as much as you love your children.
It is almost like reading her private journal/diary. She shares so much with us. every feeling, thought, heartfelt sentiment and wonderful celebration. Don’t you love how she celebrates everything. It’s wonderful.
Reading it is almost like being one her friends. One of those intricate pieces, perfectly woven into her ever present safety net.
Something that stayed with me from this book is ” God Spinners” the term her Father uses to describe those who come into every situation and “spin it for God”. She gives an example of wanting to buy a home and the homes purchase falls through and one of the God spinners Says” God has a better house waiting for you”. It’s sweet and comforting. God Spinners, it’s a lovely term, don’t you think?
I really enjoyed this book club read and although I only see one book club member leaving comments about this book( thank you Lucy) I hope you have all enjoyed reading it.
