I have really been enjoying this book and absorbing it slowly!! I think the story of the violinist really spoke to me as I have seen myself doing that. I have often hurried my children on when they saw the potential that adults all missed. This book really convicted me as I have seen myself where everything is being busy and no time is taken to sit and do some of the important things. She shares a story of how her husband almost died and how it put life into perspective when she realized how short life is. I needed a good reminder of that! This book is an excellent book for any mom or dad to read. It will remind you how short life is, enjoy the fleeting things, and don't waste time on the unimportant! I will be recommending it to all my friends!
