"I can't have my babies back, I can't take away the pain, so I have to move onward and upward." Steve's first walk was in honor of his son. He carried the LOVE LIFE sign in his effort to, as he says, "mend the broken heart while still beating." Six years and several thousand miles later, tragedy struck once again when his daughter died. This time, he said, he had the answer on the sign above his head: LOVE LIFE. It's not always easy to LOVE LIFE, but Steve is proof that if anyone can face the adversity of losing all of one's children, as he has, and still love life then it's possible for anyone. Walk along with Steve on his 43,000 mile healing adventure.Laurie handed me this book on Friday, saying she thinks I'd like it. Laurie works in the Café downstairs and is my newest Facebook friend. It's a big book, and my first thought was "but I already have too many to read." I'm trying, this year, to conquer Mount TBR. Okay, I'll explain. I've joined the Mount TBR Reading Challenge. The idea is to read and pass on the "mountains" of book waiting TBR, or "to be read." (Click the link to learn more.) That's where I should focus. But this book looks so interesting. On Amazon, 91 customers have reviewed the book, and 91 have rated it a 5. Yes, 100% of them give it the highest rating. Yes, I admit that I'm hooked after only a few pages. Thanks, Laurie.
