A Life Worth Living!, October 7, 2013
By Paula Rose Michelson

This review is from: Surviving Life: Through Faith, Hope and Love (Kindle Edition)
In her incredible account of daughter, Cori's cerebral palsy, mother, Melissa M. Carson tells us, "...we do not have to accept that we only live a certain life." This one thought grounded Melissa and because of her absolute belief that, "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone," she challenged what she was told and discovered a life for her, her daughter, and her family, built upon the concept of doing things, "...that used to be considered "outside the box" and confronted, "...the opinions of...single-minded beliefs."

Her resilience in the face of the obstacles Cori faced gave her joy in discovering, "The true measure of a person's strength is how we continue to exist when that moment does arrive," as it shaped her journey and Cori's life.

If you or someone you know is in a difficult place, or need words of wisdom, this journey of affirmation is one I recommend for within it you will discover that, to paraphrase Melissa M. Carson, "...there are no limits unless you set them." And this woman knows what she's speaking about because Cori traveled and graduated High School!

Paula Rose Michelson is the author of Casa de Naomi: The House of Blessing, Books 1&2, and The Naomi Chronicles, Book One, Beginning Anew due to release in February 2014.

Very touching. Inspiration for everyone, especially mothers. Anyone that reads this will take something away that makes them thankful for what they have in life. So much love between members of this family, it just leaps from their eyes in the pictures from the pages.

I feel life just falls into place, since real life's destiny is not of our own choosing.

Finding Inspiration
Sometimes, even in the apparent darkness of incredible challenge comes a voice of angels that give us hope and inspire us to move forward into the light of our hearts. We can then begin to see our own challenges with new perspective, a clearer reality and know that even behind the darkest of clouds, the sun continues to shine and our hearts continue to beat in rhythm with the pulse of universe itself. Cori's journey reminds us all that love, unconditional and absolute, can carry us forward to heights unimaginable beyond what is accepted and expected.
