Living Above Circumstances....

As they say (not sure who "they" are), but as they say...life is so...DAILY!  No matter what we do...how we plan...how perfect we are...life constantly throws us curve balls.

At the end of a long day, it is so nice to pick up an inspirational book like Mary Buchan's Over It! She is such an excellent writer and combines light hearted, personal stories with age old wisdom to shed rays of hope in our dark spots.

From the chapter on storms, " First, storms can be scary, particularly when they come out of nowhere, when we least expect them. Without warning, blue skies and sunny days can be replaced by dark clouds and torrential rains. Second, storms have a way of showing us what's really important....."  The tornado is one of those personal stories.

You might want to add OVER IT to your reading list...with a cup of tea and a quite time, you might start forgetting life's struggles for a time...at least put them in perspective!  Order from Amazon here!


  1. Thanks for the book recommendation. I downloaded it to my Kindle after reading the reviews on Amazon and what you wrote here. Can't wait to get home from work, grab a glass of iced tea and head out to the porch to start reading! Karen

    1. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts. The book took me 10 years to write. I published it after my mother passed away. Enjoy!

  2. What a beautiful recommendation my dear!

    Thank you so very much for your kind and encouraging words on my post today. They truly touched my soul.


  3. This sounds like a good one to read!

  4. Those days can indeed seem endless at times. All the more reason to pay attention to the good moments between the storms, and even during.

    Sounds like a wonderful recommendation, Pam.

  5. These are some inspiring words Pam. I'll definitely check it out. Your previous post was fantastic. Loved the positive energy and 'meeting' Sara. She definitely has it going on! Happy Mother's Day to you Pam.
