Gifts of Beginnings

I was given this book as a gift; a thoughtful beautiful gift to be sure, but the giver could never have perceived the profoundly significant timing of this act of kindness. You see I have just been diagnosed with cancer. She didn’t know. And if she had known she might have thought it presumptuous to give me a wake up call such as this. But cancer and this book are both gifts of beginnings. Gifts that beckon me to live fully in the moments I have been given no matter how many or how few. As with all good gifts, thanksgiving resounds from the bottom of my soul: thank you to Ann for writing, thank you to Evelyn for giving and most especially thank you to God for placing me exactly where I need to be (cancer) to fully absorb His goodness and grace contained in these pages!
