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.

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.

Sorry its taken so long] He ran over to his parents. "Tell me she is okay!" He sobed grabbing his weeping mother in his arms. Remens father stood there shocked. "She never had eney health problems!" He said to the docter. Other people in the back ground closed the ambulance doors. Remen stared after the ambulance as it rolled away. Through sobs his mother said. "We need to get to the hospitle." Bringging out the car keys with shaking hands. br> At the hospitle his parent awnsered questions. Remen just stayed in the waiting room. He looked over and saw a docter running to his mom and dad also the other doctor. The running person stopped and said something quick remen couldn't hear it but it sent his mother crying again and his father running after the docters. He stood an quickly opened the door of the waiting room and took his mother ito his arms. "W-what's wrong?"he asked scared of the awnser. "Your sisters heart has faled!" She yelled not in anger but fear and sadness. remen let go of her and turned around. "No no no no!" He said running to his sisters room. Inside the docters did C.P.R also a docter ordered 200 volts the other docter said "charging... Clear!" Marissa's body sized up and jolted up-ward. Remen stood there like a lost chiled in the mall shiver ran up his spine. "She cant die." Remen wispered. Planting his face in his palms. br> ~

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.

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.
