Susie Hemingway”s book, A Power Within, Poems of Love came in the mail today. I plan on giving it to the Mrs. for Christmas. I can’t think of a better gift. I hid it in the basement after giving it a quick read. The quick read lasted over an hour, even though I had already read most of the poems inside they are so good you can read them countless times.
I never was much of a poetry fan but these are different, I often wonder why. Maybe it’s because I found Susie while doing a random search of all of the blogs from all over the world and for some reason landed on her site. The words simply struck home. Maybe it’s because we both are blessed with beautiful, courageous and inspiring spouses who happen to be ailing. Maybe it’s because her words seem to find me at all the right times, when I need them the most. Whatever the reason, follow the link to Susie’s site, I think you will also be hooked by the passion, honesty and love her words convey.
Though written for her husband, Hamada, who is battling Multiple Myeloma, they manage to touch my soul every time I read one.
Thank you Susie, this is a great gift, probably won’t make it to the 25th!
