Weekend Reading

"Dying to Be Me" by Anita Moorjani is the pick of the week, this week.  It came into our house as a gift, as Hubby lost a close friend this week to brain cancer, after a rapid 7 week battle.  (Yes.  7 weeks).  This friend was one of those solid guys, one you could sit down with and share a joke, or a real heart-to-heart.  He was a true gentle man.  When you were in his presence, you knew he was truly there.  He was an amazing father and grandfather, who always had time for his family.  His home was always open, and we spent countless Christmas Eves and Thanksgivings and summer pool parties with them.  This book is about Anita Moorjani's Near Death Experience (NDE) and although I am not aware that our friend experienced this, it gives me some peace thinking that he is still with us and as happy and free as anyone could be.

As she says in the book, "Live your life fearlessly."
