Okay, so I love poetry. Not the deep, intense, beautiful stuff you study in literature classes, I’m more of a Dr. Suess, Shel Siverstein kinda girl.
Bring on the rhymes.
Every so often, I’ll feel super rhyme-y and just write something. It happened a couple years ago and when my friend read it, she said I should paint pictures to go with it.
So I did.
And now, 2 years later, here it is!
I almost can’t believe it. The colors in the pictures are so vivid and the book even smells good. It’s bigger, about 9×11″, and everyone who reads it wants to buy it for someone they know who is going through a hard time. (I did, too. I just gave it to my friend whose husband has cancer.)
The message is so good…it’s definitely not “my own” idea…obviously the idea that we learn from our trials has been around forever. But trials are so freaking hard sometimes. And unfair. This is why I decided to make a video out of the book, so people everywhere can feel uplifted!
So I’ve decided to give one away! (and if any of you know my husband, you know that it took a lot of groveling for me to be able to do this…)
