    Breath of fresh air for your soul

    This book touched my soul very deeply. It reminded me to see Blessings in ordinary events and people and to not take my loved ones for granted. It reminded me to find joy and blessing in a simple cup of coffee or just looking at a friends face. This is an excellent book for the person who is experiencing an illness or knows someone who is, or just experiencing burnout in the rat race of life. Don't let the fact that it's written by a medical doctor deter you from reading it. The wording is simple but powerful.

    Indeed a Blessing

    Wonderful, beautiful healing book. I re-read it whenever life jumps on me. Science, medicine, religion and spirituality exquisitely merge together in the pages of this book. It is made up of short chapters, each made up of individual stories that help you grow. One of my all-time favorite books.

    Highly Recommended

    This book is great for anyone in a career where you are helping or dealing with people on a daily basis. It gives young people entering a helping profession a sense of belonging and reaffirms their reasons for getting into the field. For veterans in the various fields, it gives a sense of rejuvenation and reminds you why you got into your career in the first place.

    A Favorite

    If I were limited to only five books, this would be one I would choose. Rachel Remen's simple but powerful stories present lessons in loving, walking with people through their pain, and real relationship. They provide wonderful lessons -- without being preachy.
