By Kelly Corrigan
5 out of 5 stars
My friend Trish says that Kelly Corrigan is her best friend, she just does not know it yet. That is not stalkery at all because when you read a book by Kelly Corrigan, you feel as if she is that one real friend that you can sit with and talk about anything. She gets it. You get her.
In this wonderful book, Kelly talks about 12 phrases that she is learning to say in different ways. I guarantee you will relate to one, if not all, of them. Especially touching to me was I Love You. It really is so true how that changes as time goes by. It changes in the way you say it to your husband or your children, your parents. This chapter had me in tears because I too have lost my father, actually both parents, and what she says about her dad, is so much of how I feel about mine. See? Best friends.
Thank you Kelly for putting into words a lot of what I feel. When you wrote about going back to when your kids were younger, I felt that. When you wrote about how great it was that they were where they are now, I felt that. When you wrote about your father and mother, felt that too.
This is the perfect book to read and reflect on life, especially since we are starting a new year. It will put a lot of things into perspective for you.
Thank you to Netgalley and Random House for this lovely, lovely book.
