Editors Note: We at the Chronicle would like to encourage you to visit a site that we believe can help us all during this tough times. The site is called “Face Your Storm.com
Each week we will bring to you stories from the readers in their own words, from this site. We hope that you will visit this site and tell your story in your words.
Everyone goes through storms in life. Whether they are brought on by personal decisions, or thrust upon us by circumstances beyond our control, the storm isn’t what defines us. The way we battle in the storm and eventually come out on the other side is our defining movement.
This site is for you. A place for you to share stories your personal storms and how you have made it through.
Your story, our story could help provide some semblance of shelter to others as their storms rage.
Here is an example of stories that will appeal on this site:
Wanted to let you know that I sat down with your book last night and read every page. It is such a beautiful story. Although I had both my parents for 50+ years, when they translated (died) about 18 months apart, I felt like an orphan and had a very hard time of it. I was surprised that I had such a hard time with my Dad’s translation, he was my challenge and the family member put in my life for my growth purposes. I am seeing now what a close, loving relationship we actually had although it didn’t always look or feel like it. He was my first (of many) alcoholic in my life. I joined Al-Anon and found my spiritual path in April 2001 and it was definitely God’s work. I just love seeing God’s fingerprints all over the AA and Al-Anon program. I get chills just thinking about it.
Thank you for putting your heart and soul into this book. I am sure that it is going to touch many people’s lives. People need to know who they are. Thank you also for putting the information about the Huntsman Cancer Foundation there as well. I saw your interview with Mr. Huntsman months ago, but didn’t act until I read your book. (Both my parents had lung cancer)
Thank you for the work you do.
May the Blessings Be,
Terry from Texas
