Monday Memes

Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading 

This week’s question:
What is the last book that you learned something from? What book was it, and what did it teach you?
My answer:
Since I read mostly fiction, there are some books that I come away with thought provoking thoughts from, but learning?  I’m not that sure.   The only book that comes to mind is a book I read back in September, matter of fact, I looked at my spreadsheets and I finished it on September 18th.   And even then I can’t say I learned a lot from it, but what it did do, was verify what I already believed and gave me strength at that particular time when I needed it most.   It was 90 Minutes In Heaven by Don Piper.   A true story by a minister of his horrific car accident where he was pronounced dead, however, another person on the scene prayed over his body.   And he tells of his journey to the afterlife.  I mentioned the date that I finished the book for a reason.   I read this book while I sat by my Mom’s bedside and I started to see her journey begin and on September 22nd she passed away in my arms.

Being a former nurse, unfortunately this process was not new to me, but when it is your own, it is totally different.   What I did learn from the book and see with my Mom was the start of her journey.   Where and when she saw those who had gone before her.   Who and when she was talking to those who were waiting for her.   And the second she left here to be reunited  with those that she longed to see and where she will wait for us someday.

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour. According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

  1. Cheryl….think you fell off my radar when you changed you blog in January…sorry ( I sometimes delete blogs that haven’t posted in over a month). Back on my list you are!

    Enjoy your new books — they all look good.

  2. You received such an eclectic lot of what looks like fabulous reads! Enjoy them all!

    I think you can learn from fiction as well. I think that your mom was very lucky to have a loving daughter like you and if she can, she is smiling down on you.
