Happy Mother’s Day Friday, reader friends! I just finished reading today’s feature earlier this week and y’all simply MUST check it out! I don’t even have words to express how wonderful this story is, big time book hangover in session over here!
“One minute a guy is splitting wood in the northeastern corner of the country, stomach rumbling and heart afire with ambition in the wake of his eighteenth birthday, and the next minute he’s pumping water from the old kitchen sink to clean the work off his hands and pick up a letter from the president of the United States of America himself.“
This beautiful story swept me away and I might never find my landlubber legs again!
