From childhood to parenthood, from losing loved ones to having breakfast with Mother Teresa, from baseball to God Almighty, these bits of memoir are uplifting and thought-provoking reflections that take the reader on a journey filled with laughter, tears, friendship and faith.
Perspective, humor, life lessons, and spiritual growth is just some of what awaits the reader in this rich gathering of shorts filled with outer reality and inner sensibility.
