Last year, my brother, sister-in-law, and husband celebrated Mom’s 78th birthday without her.
In years past, whenever we dined out for Mom’s birthday, my brother and I knew the drill: restaurants were chosen according to their desserts, not their entrees. Our mother never ate according to anyone’s food pyramid; she lived by the mantra: “Life is uncertain–eat dessert first!”
We remembered her just as she would have wished: on the waterfront at sunset, with a giant slice of key-lime pie. And so it is with sweet delight that, today–on what would be Mom’s 79th birthday–I’m sharing the cover and release date of my fourth book:
Dessert First: Preparing for Death While Savoring Life, will be released from Chalice Press in September 2019.
Our Mom taught us that when we begin with the end in mind, life becomes precious and pleasing—like dessert first!—not merely something we’re muddling through.
Celebrate the gift of her life lessons. Enjoy your favorite dessert first.
