One of My Rainbows

They often say that God puts people in our path and after knowing my blogging buddy, Chris Carter or The Mom Café, I couldn’t agree more. She has come to be one of the most important people in my life. She is a strong shoulder to cry on or laugh with and I hope I am the same for her. She manages to not only be the calm in a lot of my storms but also one of my rainbows and I feel immensely blessed that our paths crossed.

When I read the whole Sunshine After the Storm book, I wanted to ask someone to do a review but this is such a hard book to do that with. How do you say to the person, “Here, this is going to make you cry and tug at your heart and give you that feeling that stays with you all day”?

When I asked Chris, she didn’t even hesitate. She was about to have what I think became the toughest week of her life and she STILL wrote a review for me. Please, please go over there and read her words. She does our book so much justice. Click here to see it.

Thank you , Chris. From the bottom of my heart.

  1. I just read her review and I had to comment immediately. I’m reading the book too, but I’m only in the beginning. I’m struck by the book being a collection of survival and hope, and not a collection of losses.
    I haven’t gotten to your story yet, but my heart is/will be with you.

    • I’m so glad you see it that way! That’s how it is supposed to be. To show how you can survive it. To show that not all hope is lost. So glad you are reading it. :)

  2. Headed over to read it now!

  3. Headed over there right now. Chris is one of a kind, isn’t she?! She’s just the most genuine and wonderful person. I absolutely adore her! (and you, AnnMarie!) –Lisa

  4. I love you. I am SO grateful that we have grown incredibly close, and we can be each other’s “go to girls”. You- my friend, are the best. And I was incredibly honored that you asked me to read such a significant and devastatingly gorgeous piece of work.

    I STILL am honored. Always will be… each and every precious story will continue to linger in my heart, and in my prayers.

  6. I read Chris’ beautiful post. I had already bought the book but had been hesitant to start. I’d only read the intros when I read the review and realized it is about hope and survival. I’m 3 chapters in now and while the subject is hard the way each mom has expressed her own story is so touching. Each voice is different and yet you relate. I can already see how anyone can benefit from reading this book.
