Why I wrote Discovering Life’s Blessings in Disguise

Since we have quite a few new friends to my page, I thought  I’d give you a little sneak peak into my book.

I didn’t write my book for me- I never really had any intentions of being an author-  except for when I was in Elementary school, I think once or twice I might have thought, “wouldn’t it be cool to be a famous author?”  But let’s face it,  as we grow older we unfortunately let outside influences of the World squash our dreams.

I can assure you, during our nearly 10 year period of back to back health issues with our kids and then myself and financial stress do to all the medical bills, I certainly wasn’t thinking all that time, “Oh this is cool, I’m going to write about this someday!”  I was literally trying to survive mentally and emotionally each and every day. But as we started to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and most of our health struggles were behind us, others started telling me  I should write a book.  Even almost strangers who I’d meet and we’d get to talking and getting to know each other, would say to me, “Your story would make a great book,”  or, ” You should write a book about that”.  Of course even some family members, my Dad being the first one, encouraged me to write a book about our life experiences.

The seed was planted, and as friends would come to me, or bring their friends to me, to ask me what we did, or how we got through, I realized I had the opportunity to help others.  I became so passionate about that- the idea that I could take all the crap we went through, and help others along their journey through life.

I am very excited to be on this journey of helping and inspiring others to get through what ever struggles they are facing.  I am starting to see the blessings in what we went through, as painful as they were at the time, and sometimes still are when I allow myself to deeply reflect on them. I would love for you to be someone I’ve helped, if there are issues in your life right now that seem insurmountable, or if you have a friend or family member who is struggling.  Now that the release date is so near, please help me spread the word about my book so that if it’s the right fit, I’ll be able to be an inspiration to others.  I would be very appreciative if you would share my blog, or facebook page.  I may not become famous, but just knowing I’ve helped a few will be a blessing to me.   We all are faced with challenges in life, the trick is sometimes, Discovering Life’s Blessings in Disguise!

Make today the best day ever!
