How do you cope with life when your husband is an Army helicopter pilot on the front lines of Iraq? What keeps you going when you are separated from your spouse for a year at a time while he risks his life to defend your freedoms? How do you survive when you are a mother of an Autistic child, (with two siblings, 2 dogs, 3 guinea pigs, and a turtle)? How do you continue to face each day when the doctors tell you that you have a degenerative nerve disease and that you will spend the rest of your days medicating constant pain? Is it possible to live with all of these challenges and still truly “live”? The answer is “YES”!
This collection of original writings, (which began as simple blogs posted as a way to cope with the challenges of her life), quickly gained a following as hundreds of military families and friends found a voice for their silent struggles. Independent author, Gina Sanford, uses her gifts as a wordsmith to provide her readers with comedic and thought provoking encouragements to “live each day to the fullest despite the obstacles”. Chapters like “Grandma Sock”, and “OMG! They Missed The Bus!” show the hilarious side of life as a sort-of-single-Army-mom. While others like, “A Day to Remember”, and “How Are You?” take a serious look at military life and how it affects friendships, marriages, and families.
