This was such an amazing and empowering story of love, and the power of it. This woman and man were on the verge of divorce, and they realized how far apart they have fallen. But with their young daughter getting married, and their two boys and everything they've been through they realized they can't even think about giving up such a beautiful thing they've had for so long. Anyone that is going through a divorce, or knows of anyone that is ..should pick up this book. It will make you smile, it will make you cry - it will make you realize the most important things in life sometimes are right in front of your face and you just have to know where to look. They really dwell on a special scripture quote from the bible, which I have learned to love .. and it goes ..
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
And it is absolutely true ..
The story of romance, perseverance, passion, compassion, love ..
I highly recommend it.

This book is unlike any book I have ever read. But I loved it. The stories of these people are just so powerful and strong. It is amazing what faith in the higher power can do. Some of my favorite hymns that have touched my life and still to this day I sing with a open heart and contrite spirit. The struggles and triumphs the authors of the hymns have written and shared, it's just amazing. I sang the songs on the page right before I read about it, and it made me understand it a lot better. I highly recommend this book to anyone.

You never realise how short life really is, until something drastic happens. If you are mad at someone, make up. Don't take anything for granted. Hug your family, friends, husband and just remember, no matter how hard you have it ..someone somewhere has it harder then you. No matter what place or time. ♥
My best friends husband is in the ICU. He had a aneurysm this afternoon while she was at work, and their 8 year old son found him unresponsive and not breathing. He is on a ventilator and not responding to any tests. They said there is no brain activity, so that means he is brain dead. I feel so helpless and heartbroken. I love that family like my own. I am trying to be there for her. She doesn't deserve this. They are waiting for his parents to get there, to decide what further action to take. This is so hard.
