Kathleen Walker used to place flowers on her parents' graves. One day she realizes that practicing kindness in her life might be a better tribute to her parents than placing a bouquet on their headstones. She tells a poignant story of her life as an identical twin who grew up struggling to gain her own identity. After college graduation, she returns home to help care for her ailing father. She eventually finds happiness in her roles as wife, mother, and teacher, but she still feels as though there's something missing.
During her husband's four cancer surgeries, she draws on her faith, but at times, she questions the existence of God and feels disappointed in her support system. It is during this traumatic time that Kathleen has an epiphany-that life is really about making a choice to do what's important now. Through this truth, she begins to heal.
Kathleen's determination to find ways that will make a difference today in her life, as well as the lives of others, is an inspiration to anyone.
