Ok, we need to back up a little bit here. I got a little ahead of myself on that last post since it really was a rush to see that book on line and hear that it's on the shelves (and in fact, last night I SAW it on the shelves...weird).
But I really meant to say a little bit more about the co-author...my Mom. She is one amazing woman. I wrote a little about her a while ago here, but I didn't write about the great author she is. She's written like 25 books (most of them are co-authored with my Dad). My favorites are "I Didn't Plan to Be a Witch" and "A Joyful Mother of Children." If anyone wants some serious good motherhood inspiration click on Amazon and get yourself one of those beauties because boy howdy I promise you will love them (and plus I think they're super cheap now...she wrote them quite a while ago). I re-read them whenever I'm overwhelmed curled up in the corner wanting to give up. And then I'm ready to face the world again.
My Mom has the most amazing "job" ever. I put it in parenthesis because seriously, I don't think you can really call it a job. She and my Dad get to travel all over the world to give presentations on parenting for a business organization with chapters all over the place. She's met and influenced people from Dubui to Perth to South Africa. (Click here for more info...)
But the best thing about my Mom is that she's mine. And she has shown me that from the time I was tiny. Amidst the myriad of things pulling at her in life, she chose (and continues to choose) to put her children first. All nine of them. And I think every one of us think we're her favorite. Because that's how she treats us.
So, that's the real reason you should buy "A Mother's Book of Secrets." Because she'll inspire you like nobody's business.
Love you Mom!
