Memorable, uplifting and inspirational!

I needed a book like this, and I saw a chance and for it on Facebook. I've been really feeling stuck and unhappy in my job, over weight and hating myself, and my husband of 30 years is still in the throes of a major battle with cancer, having two major surgeries, radiation, and now chemo in two years. It's hard not to think of what I would do if the treatments don't work, and that is just about as much stress as I can handle. I've suffered from depression for about 20 years, and the stakes were stacking up against me. But the stress I can usually handle, it's the fear that is paralyzing. This book has taught me that we all suffer and have hardships that seem insurmountable, and I'm not unique in that. These women showed me that I can be scared but still be strong, choose to go a different direction or give in to a lifelong dream. They've taught me that lifestyle experiences are today, and I don't have to take them with me into tomorrow. Thank you, Ms. Thomas, for bringing these ladies to my house!
