This is Not the Story You Think it Is...
A Season of Unlikely Happiness
a memoir
Laura Munson

I quoted something from this last week or the week before. The story of a different approach to adversity. A specific adversity - her husband saying he wanted to leave her. It was interesting to read this approach and to compare it to how I might have reacted, and how many others might have reacted. I don't know how I feel about it quite honestly. What she did required much patience and understanding, and to live in that moment and keep that in mind is a tremendous challenge.

Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead
The Frank Meeink Story as told to Jody M. Roy

It was great to read this as I was home dealing with my mom. Such hardship he lived with - a great steadying book for me. In a weird sense.

I don't think I could manage that Munson book.

The Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead sound challenging, but I think I'd find it interesting.

I haven't either of those. The skinhead book looks REALLY interesting.

I haven't read either. Both sound interesting!

Its so hard to know what to do with an aging parent especially when you do not live close. My dad has one of those lifeline buttons. It does help him to feel more independent and safe.
