This sharing hits home in my heart more than any other story has in quite a while. For any of you that have a child graduating, leaving the home, or if you are becoming empty nesters for the first time, reading this story will allow you to feel that you are in good company.
Catherine Graves shares a piece of her story with Women For One today in hopes to touch others who may be going through a journey similar to hers. I read her book Checking Out: An In-Depth Look At Losing Your Mind, when it first came out and I could not put it down. I remember thinking how raw her pain was when she describes taking care of her terminally ill husband and what courage it takes to get as real as she does in this book. Catherine is a woman who embraces the lessons of her life because she is awake and willing to learn. I admire her truth telling.
CHECKING OUT- is a book about a woman who lives through her worst fears, makes mistakes, loves deeply and refuses to loose the lesson. She writes with a raw truth that is unique and refreshing.
