I wrote the book that I needed when I was a young mother. It still surprises me some days: that I wrote a book. It doesn't surprise me, though, that I still need it!

I hope it is helpful to you, but mostly I hope you feel like you are in good company while you are reading. I certainly felt that I was while I was writing.

Let me know.
