“Words can heal. They can surprise. They can encourage. It
“Words can heal. They can surprise. They can encourage. It doesn’t matter if they are handwritten or if a Hallmark had to be leaned on for a little help. Words matter. Because they remind each of us who we are to the people in our lives.” Aren’t these just wonderful words to reflect upon on? These words are just a few of the wonderful statements that Jim enlightens his readers with as we traveled back in time with Jim, when he was a child growing up with his brothers and his parents and also as he shares his battle with cancer and the emotions in both of these arenas. How he connected these situations in each chapter was unique and sometimes confusing to me but nevertheless, I enjoyed the book and it made me appreciate again how wonderful life is and to enjoy it, as it truly is a gift and should be enjoyed. I have read books like this before, the books that give you a prep talk and the author gives you a reflection of their life story but Jim does that with an interesting twist. Each chapter reflects on his childhood, some story of growing up with 4 older brothers and then Jim ends the chapter talking about his battle with cancer and how he deals with it- either with his family or with his siblings. He tries to connect the stories –not a sad book but more of a “get-out-there-and-live-life-to-the-fullest” book. We all need to read these positive, uplifting books.
