I recently read ( and reviewed) a book titled “Jewel” by Bret Lott.
and if you are at all into reading (it’s an Oprah’s book club book) I highly recommend you pick it up at your local book store or library.
If you are now or have ever dealt with an ill child that required all your time and devotion whether that illness was acute or chronic this book will fill your heart with all the words and emotions you think but have never quite been able to put words to.
read my review here
This book especially spoke volumes to me as I have 3 children,
2 of them have food allergies one to dairy, eggs, tree-nuts, and peanuts(and one just eggs, tree-nuts and peanuts)
the one with slightly fewer allergies also fights asthma and eosinophilic esophagitus.
its been a long 11 years some times
and I wouldn’t trade any of them
this book gets to the heart of a mom
the sacrifices she makes in regards to her marriage, and her other children
all to help the one child get the best help possible
If you are a parent/mom/grandparent or even just human
you will find yourself feeling what Jewel is feeling…..
empathizing with her
and in the end
do yourself a favor….read the book!
