And now I do.
I ran out immediately and got the book that "my angel" suggested to me. I sat in the Starbucks inside the bookstore and drank an iced caramel macchiato and dived in. Oh my goodness....the author wrote this book for me. She wrote it about me. She wrote it for us.
Okay, so she didn't. But it's so well written and so me that it seems like she did.
It's going to be my saving grace....my marriage's saving grace.
It's giving me a new outlook. A renewed spirit. Another chance. It's giving my family another chance.
And because it is such an amazing book, I went out and bought another copy. And I want to share it with you. Even if your marriage is
