Parents With Broken Hearts by William L. Coleman

If you are a parent you know you are susceptible to heart aches. Some hearts are completely broken while others are badly wounded and still others are only mildly damaged in places.

I bought this little book back in 1996. Actually the book in the photo was purchased on eBay last year after I loaned out my original and forgot to whom I had lent it! I found the book to be out of print at the time so was relieved to find a used
replacement! I have read Parents With Broken Hearts over and over. I have read portions of it  aloud to my mother and husband as well as shared the wisdom gleaned from it with  friends, siblings, neighbors and ......last night an 'Eat, Pray, Love' group.

This morning I searched for additional copies of this book and found them NEW and readily available from a variety of sources from Amazon.com to Barnes and Noble. I apparently was not the only avid reader of Parents With Broken Hearts!

 I must tell you that Motherhood is worth any and all heartache.....even if you end up with a broken heart. I have always felt that being a mother has been God's highest calling in my life and prayed for long years to have more children. "God granted me that which I requested." ~I Chronicles 4:10~

In our land of books on every subject I was so very grateful THIS one was written. It has and continues to help me cope with less than perfect situations. The wisdom is priceless. As I close this post I wish there were more books out there to help me in my role as a mother to 'grown ups.' As long as I draw breath and my children live I will forever be a MOTHER.

"The Lord is close to the Brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."    Psalm 34:18

I love you mom!
