My "mother-of-my-heart" is insisting that we all return to our normal daily activities--she's kicked us out of the hospital! Actually, she has returned to a room in Telemetry and will begin Cardiac rehab today! Because this involves walking 3-4 times each day, as well as various other activities that will no doubt wear her out--her request is reasonable. She will need to rest--not entertain!
So I have come back to my normal activities......laundry, dusting, errands, but first--my blog! After checking my e-mails, I noticed a personal note from Janice at 5 Minutes for Mom. Along with a personal sentiment regarding my MIL, she wanted to let me know that she is reviewing an important book (on yesterday's post) and will be posting an interview today with the author(s). The book is entitled, "Come Back: A Mother and Daughter’s Journey Through Hell and Back." This book is setting on my nightstand; a book that I read this summer and found it so impactful that I could not hide it away in my bookshelf. From time to time, I pick it up and just touching the cover reminds me: A mother will go to the ends of the earth to rescue her child.
Please visit Janice's blog and read her review of this incredible account of mother and daughter. And don't forget to return for the interview with Claire and Mia. And then, go to your library, local bookstore or order through Amazon.com! This is a book every parent must have on their bookshelf (or their nightstand!) as a resource that will strengthen, encourage, and inspire.
So as I come back to the semi-normalcy of life; I gladly link to 5 Minutes for Mom, referring you to this life changing book. Also, I want to thank each person who has left a word of encouragement, e-mailed, and offered prayer support. You are the wind beneath our wings as we travel through this medical crisis!
