There's a lot of wisdom in this thin volume.

I wish you could meet Mooster Rob. That's what I called him. He is all that Frank was not. He is kind, caring, loving, and giving. I am convinced that he would give his last penny to anyone who would ask for it. Today, he spent the day helping me put things on Ebay. Is he crazy? He must be.

When we're young, we constantly make choices about what we do and don't like. When we get older, we relish knowing who we are. But there's a risk, too, in blindly following habitual likes and dislikes. I refuse to think what I know about myself to date is all there is to know.

The phone number seemed vaguely familiar in my foggy state, but was not one I had programmed into my contacts. I have had wrong number phone calls in the middle of the night before.

Some people think Mother's Day has become too commercial, and there are always those cranks around still harping on the US lagging behind other developed countries in providing high quality early child care, don't get them started on paid maternal leave or unequal pay for women.
