HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!
Two hundred and forty-two years ago, in 1776 we were not even a country yet. We were thirteen colonies who signed the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE from Great Britain.
That act of thirteen colonies uniting as one group who dreamed of becoming a free and independent nation changed the course of history.
I am excited that we, as a great nation, can make it possible for our country to achieve that miracle again today!To become united for the good of our nation. That is what I dream of on this day, July 4, 2018.
I am also excited about the release of my latest book,
THE GRIEVING GIFT, An Autobiographical Novel!
Help me celebrate!!
Great reading for the FOURTH OF JULY
THE GRIEVING GIFT
Janice’s older sister, Margaret, wanted to believe that the L.A. doctors at Cedars Sinai Medical Center held a magical deck of cards, but after eight years of treatment they dealt their final card. The Hospice card. No miracles for Margaret. Janice reassures her big sister she will be there, holding her hand every step of the way.
On a death watch, you get to know things about a person you wish you didn’t. It is like a roller coaster ride. And like most rides, it brings us back to the place we began, reminding us of who we were and who we have become.
The twists and turns of Janice’s emotional journey transports her back through the repercussions of her teen pregnancy and into the present estrangement from her daughter, whom she has not heard from for the last sixteen years.
Coming to terms with the grief of losing her sweet Margaret, and dealing with her fear of a lonely future is too much for Janice to imagine. When Margaret’s soul goes to rest in L.A. heaven, how will Janice face the emptiness? Will there be such a thing as a Grieving Gift?
