As I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of our third baby girl, I find myself spending a lot of time on mommy Facebook groups, and one question I see all the time is, how do I get a breast pump? Does insurance cover it? Do I have to contact insurance?
I see women looking for used breast pumps because otherwise they’re so expensive, and I want to say NO, NO, NO! You get a free one! And it’s easy. There are SO MANY QUESTIONS when all you want is your pump, am I right?
Everyone thinks their grandpa is the best, and that’s really nice and everything, but the truth is, mine actually was the best.
You were the actual best grandpa, great grandfather, dad, neighbor, worker, and friend. You’re the man everyone aspires to be, the one great character every reader is completely enamored with and that every author hopes to write about – but quite honestly, it may be impossible for even the best writer to capture your wit, smarts, quirks, and charm.
Last night, you died, and when I held your hand, it was still so big and warm, just like always. You looked like you; you still looked so handsome; you looked finally at rest. I can still feel you holding my hands, cupping them around mine since I was a kid to keep me warm, and until the very end, you were still my warm protector.
Thank you Gather As You Go for sending me a copy of this book to review. All opinions are my own.
As a writer, I’ve always found value in jotting things down, from words of wisdom during high school Speech class, hilarious and wise thoughts from my Gram, advice from friends and family, and memories. There’s something I cherish about physically documenting these experiences that make them more concrete and valuable. It’s not often I find all the things I love and value beautifully bundled up in one book, but I’ve come across a true treasure in Carol Lavin Bernick’s Gather As You Go.
This is more than “just another coffee table book,” (which you know I love); it’s truly your total life resource book, sharing personal experiences, lessons, and wisdoms collected through the author’s life, all bound together in one inspirational book, taking you everywhere from corporate America and one’s civic duty to navigating motherhood, life’s celebrations, pitfalls, and everything in between.
