It reinforces the strong emotional response I had to Corey Wheeland 's book- blessed, beautiful now.Sometimes something comes into your life just when you need it- like this ook.

Every page has a thought or a phrase that resonated and brought up a memory from my own past, just like those Corey relates in her process of finding appiness.

But his is our blessed, beautiful now so I shucked off that regret too.So here 's my final thought- pick up a nove and writ about Corey and Zoey 's life together.
