The title is a reference to the Biblical story of those who carried the paralytic to Jesus. The story is in Mark 2:1-12.

This book has long been a favorite and since it isn't hardback, the poor book is falling apart, yet I can't bear to throw it away. It continues to remind me of what is important.
