Sometimes I am still amazed at this new network of people I have met and grown to care about - many without ever physically meeting.
One fellow mito mom and I started talking at least a year ago - comparing notes and supporting each other. Her daughter is a teenager. Recently this special person sent me the book - "Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar"
I was able to start reading it the other weekend during a college friends girls trip to the lake for some rest and relaxation (which I really enjoyed!) It's a collection of "dear Abby" type columns, but about some serious crazy stuff.
I realized I couldn't read it in one sitting, but rather have enjoyed reading one or two in the evening and thinking about what it means or how it could apply to our lives.
I highly recommend the book - no matter what your life challenge is, the auther Cheryl Strayed aka Sugar, has a sharp sense of humor, quick to the point and just has a great perspective.
Thank you to my east coast mito mom for your support and generosity - I will be paying it forward to another mighty mito mom just as soon as I'm done reading!
