"What Comes Next and How to Like It -- A memoir by Abigail Thomas
and I read some last night.
Author in her middle 70's, married several times, children by several and best friend
and companion at this time of life has a serious illness.
Read about this best seller
in the New York Times
thought I might learn something :)
Read a little and will continue later.
Love her honesty and wish it had been written years ago
it would have made me have a different outlook on some in my life
and I think I would have reacted differently sooner then I did over the years.
Friendship, betrayal, aging, dogs are some of the topics.
How to accept, appreciate and enjoy as the journey goes onward.
Some issues she discusses and could handle
I could not.
When it comes to my children
I am fierce and protective of them
always have been and it continues.
This one trusted many that I should not have and was difficult for me to accept them as they really are.
Always thought some would change if I had positive thoughts about them
but if you do not recognise this yourself it does not happen
I now realize so few in my lifetime that I could trust completely.
Hopefully wiser at this time
and better late then never :)
Peace is the most valuable gift I have been given
at this time of life..
