This is what I’m reading at the moment and it’s one of the most beautifully written books I can remember reading. I’ve been following Kelle’s blog for about a year now, and love, love, love her attitude towards life, hardship and finding joy in the midst of everyday trials.
I was given Bloom by a friend, who handed it to me and said, “I’m sorry, but you’ll be crying in the first 10 minutes….but it gets better, I promise.” “OK”, I say, having no clue how this book would really touch my heart. I sat down Saturday afternoon on my sunny deck, propped up my feet, with my shades on ready to drink in this book and found myself a crying mess by page 10. My pour husband came home at about chapter 3 and gave me the “what in the world happened to you” look and so I explained, re-did my makeup and then made myself put the book down for our date night.
Moral of the story: DO NOT read until you can cry your eyes out and not have anywhere to go in the near future!
I don’t want you to have the idea it’s just a sad story. It’s so much more. You will be laughing out loud, re-reading the hilarious parts to your husband late in bed, and then, yes, you will cry again….BUT, it will grow you, encourage you, and spur you on in your personal life.
