SCROLL DOWN ON SIDEBAR TO VOTE. Only ONE vote each.
Our first story of the month is from Mary Gottschalk
Mary wrote a memoir, Sailing Down the Moonbeam and is a true example of a “gutsy” woman who stepped out of the corporate world into a world where nature became her boss. This gave her clarity and made her realize what’s important in life.
Christine shared such an honest account of what it’s like to go through the various stages of cancer from detecting a lump, waiting for biopsy results, then surgery and chemotherapy. What I loved was her positive message, that made me realize that there are always lessons to be learned even the ones we fear the most.
You brought tears to our eyes with your coming-of-age memoir. As you said, you had a “gutsy” mother.
Linda, you transported us into your life as a child, a young woman and finally a mother yourself yearning all your life for your own mother’s love, approval and recognition. You forgave your mother at the end of her life, which makes your story so compelling.
VOTING for your favorite January 2013 “My Gutsy Story®” starts on January 31st, and ends on February 13th. The winner will be announced on February 14th, Valentine’s Day. We have a new sponsor, Carolyn Howard-Johson, who is offering her e-book as a prize: The Frugal Editor.
