Potential Book Titles

Every once in a while I get an overzealous commenter who thinks I should write a book. I doubt I will. But every once in a while, I like to think of what I could offer the world based on our experiences. Here are some titles I've come up with:

Coffee, Bourbon, and Ice Cream: Cure for Cancer?
No, but That’s Not the Point

How to Look Slightly Less Tired
Concealer, Mascara, and the Color Pink

Detective Novels: Key Components to Mental Health

Haiku for Every Occasion
…with contributions from over 100 Friends of Sarah!

What Not to Say to Sad People

Charming: How to Get Free Coffee Almost Anywhere

Scott, the Equipment Whisperer

How to Maximize Your Carbon Footprint:
Maximizing Your Packaging and Petroleum

'what not to say' is one of the best things I've ever read. Thanks. The truth is people hurt with you and they somehow want to make it 'all better' and no one can do that and many of us struggle with accepting that sad truth.

The good news however is that we can pray with you and there is Someone who can strengthen and comfort and guide you thru something most of us will never understand. Thank you for letting us learn thru Thomas' journey how God encompasses you with His love in ALL times good or bad.

Hmmmn... tough one. My vote goes to:

Coffee, Bourbon, and Ice Cream: Cure for Cancer?
No, but That’s Not the Point

or

Scott, the Equipment Whisperer

But I thought you might go for "The purple daiper grabber" (one of your posts I remember the best)

For us the wife would have used "The Bubble Club". Mine was the more prosaic "Let's go somewhere quiet".

So.... Sarah and Scott --- I've been meaning to ask you -- WHAT KIND of coffee do you like? I remember a previous blog where you mentioned that you appreciated people that could just "be there"..... and COFFEE. So WHAT KIND?
(Sorry I didn't bring coffee : (

Comfort and peace to you-all today. Dalene
(the wonderful thing about God is that he can give peace even when we DON'T understand.... I ask for this peace for you.)

I read Sarah's post on Real Live Preacher with great sadness. My wife of almost 33 years has been suffering from brain cancer for the past 11 years, and it is now progressed to a very bad point.
I work at home, and take care of her by myself, as all 3 of our sons are in college or on their own. We are Christians, and all of this is still hard. My wife's attitude is really inspiring. It is lonely, though, and I am scared much of the time. I, too have found the most comfort from those who simply offer their presence. I have some stories about our struggles, along with some other stories not related, at http://anmchara1212.blogspot.com.
