"You're so focused on being normal that you haven't realized that you're actually not."

All his words hit my heart at odd angles, burrowing in, staying.
The small creek gurgles beside us and is so clogged with old leaves, that the water is several different shades of glittering gold and orange. Minnows dart about and water bugs skate on top. Tucker watches it with me.
I like the visual elements of Joanne Bischof's writings. I am there with them. As I continue to read I envelop them. Dreams, aspirations, patience, concern, life... So beautifully written and six tissues later I come out the other side. Thank you to author Joanne Bischof for a story that needed to be told ~ for hearts open to receive. A love beyond mention and a healing of a heart. I look forward to the next story!
***Thank you to author Joanne Bischof for this story of life and love beyond anything we could ever hope or imagine ~ given to us by God, Himself. This review was written in my own words. No other compensation ~ besides Grace! ~ was received.***
