A Small Piece From A Chapter In My New Book - Trapped

One evening a few days later Allison arrived home very late, and once Chris saw her entering the home with a very large box in her hands, he got up from the sofa, rushing to the door to help her asking, "What's in this box, it's heavy". Allison smiled and softly said that it was a surprise. He had always liked surprises and was eager to see what was inside. She asked him not to rush into the package, but said after she had prepared their dinner and they were done with their meals, she would open the box and reveal to him her surprise. Once dinner had been prepared and they had eaten and were now watching TV, Chris brought up the package, "the box" - hinting for her to open it. She conceded to opening the box at that point, stating that she could hardly wait for him to see what she had purchased. Allison sat him next to her and poured them both a glass of wine and she made a toast to a new beginning. He agreed with a new beginning, but asked "What new beginning? and what's the occasion?" Allison began untying the bow that was attached to the box, and as Chris looked patiently on, she opened the box, taking out the stuffing that was inside. She stood up in the middle of the floor and pulled out a brand-new wedding dress and said to him, "What do you think about the dress, honey?" He immediately put his glass of wine down and stood up with a look of confusion on his face and said to her, "Why have you gone out and purchased a wedding dress!, raising his voice. I don't understand," he said. Allison chuckled and replied that it was the dress that she was going to be married in. He sat down and said that there has been a misunderstanding and some sort of mistake - married in?, I didn't propose," he said.

The Book Reader's Comment

I read the book in two days. It was wonderful and well written. You hit the nail on the head as the saying goes. Many of us forget our true value and self worth as Women. We always forget ourselves because we constantly put the world ahead. It made me feel much better and appreciated for being the Woman that I am. All Women are Super Heroes! Due to our busy lives, we often forget or are preoccupied, that we forget God is our source of energy, survival, love, patience, strength, etc. I enjoyed the book and have given it to my daughters who are now Women. Wow! I look forward to reading all your materials.

It is also great that part of the proceeds go to an excellent cause. Many Single Mothers need an outlet of support. It feels great to know that someone cares, we are appreciated and there is always some form of assistance available.

Thank you for your wisdom and time as far as writing this book. You are like the Guiding Big Sister so many of us need!!!

Our today always looks better than our yesterday.

We are still here! Today is still better than our yesterday, no matter what yesterday held.
