Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Each week participants open to a random page in the book they are currently reading and share two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, being careful not to include spoilers, i.e. too much information that would ruin the experience of read­ing the book for others.

Watching my mother fight for her life with so much quiet dignity and strength forced me to reevaluate what I wanted the next phase of my own journey to be. Would I continue to stand still, never reaching beyond what was right in front of me, or would I finally learn to love myself enough to do the things that actually made me feel fulfilled?

    I have read this book and I think it was truly inspiring. It is always scary when your parent is unwell and battling for her life. In many parts I was moved to tears.
