Everyone longs for encouragement and reassurance that we are not alone when having to deal the big ordeals or events in our lives and that the pain you have known and the conflict you have experienced can and will give you the strength to walk through life facing each new situation with courage and optimism.
Please know this is not a depressing, sad book. It's a very happy book of perserverence, strength and courage along with humor and laughs!
It is my mission to help others who are suffering from auto-immune diseases or taking care of someone who is ill. It is such a scary thing and can get so very over-whelming. I have been down that road hard and fast and I have so much to share as I hold their hand to let them know they are not alone at such a hard time.
Born in LaFollette, Tennessee and reared in Florida; almost to the age of 1/2 century. I worked 20 years as a Paralegal Specialist at the State Attorney's Office, Ninth Circuit, Orlando, Florida. This position enabled me to write every hour of every day. It all came to a screeching halt when I got hit with a stroke in the thalamus causing Central Pain Syndrome along with thyroid cancer and goiter associated with Grave's Disease. My life changed so drastically that many people just could not fathom any of this was actually true. I set forth and wrote my book, At the End of the Day, to share with everyone the truth of it all. This book is written in the form as if we are sitting in the same room chatting with each other; person to person with great transparency and openness. My hopes are that everyone enjoys the read as they take the ride along with me.
At The End of the Day is an inspiring book about Lisa's life journey. I found myself fighting back tears and reliving moments in my own life which I can relate to that Lisa herself has lived. I think everyone has faced some of the journeys and it helps to know we are not alone. Family and friends are an important thin...g to have in life. At The End of the Day helps you to see just that. Kelly Hagen Author of Jake & Jesus
I couldn't put At the End of the Day aside until I'd read the last word. Sometimes I laughed and sometimes I cried. I admired Lisa's willingness to share her life story (to date) in detail and at an incredibly fast pace. It crossed my mind that she and her family certainly seemed to have endured far more than their share of heartache, troubles, and sicknesses. But God doesn't promise any of us that we won't have troubles and heartaches. He does promise us He will always be with us through them all, that He will never leave us, and that He will hear and answer our prayers. What comforting words! Lisa certainly is an amazingly strong person, and I admire that trait. As for me, I am only strong because my faith in God makes me strong. And when I finished At the End of the Day, I was left with an 'unfinished' feeling, so I gave God the glory for blessing Lisa with the strength to endure some terribly troublesome times. If I were Lisa, I know that I could not go on without Him. He is my Comforter, my greatest strength in times of troubles--my Savior, my Lord. Without Him, I would just be drifting!
I recommend this book to anyone who thinks he/she has it tough, that troubles seem to assail only him/her, who needs words of encouragement, or needs a lesson in will power and determination. Lisa Budzinski will bless their hearts with her story. Linda Robinson, author of When Love Abounds
