In this book is a collection of 16 short stories that contains a wide range of emotions, each of which have one common goal - to inspire others to be more than they are and to give them the special meaning they have been searching for. There isn't anything fancy to each story and the characters are not eccentric nor are they meant to be. Just as we are on a journey through our lives, each short story is a glimpse into that journey of the human condition and showcases the strength of faith and love that we have both in ourselves and in each other. A Special Message to My Readers I want to personally and sincerely thank you for taking the time to check out my book. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed creating and writing each short story. The stories contained in this book have become my most precious collection as each one has touched me in more ways than anyone can realize. I originally began writing these stories as a source of strength and comfort to myself in an attempt to find some kind of special meaning. As I wrote each one, I soon realized that these stories had a greater purpose: To inspire and to help others. I believe that these stories can relate to a diverse group of people as each journey genuinely comes straight from my heart. Each one has been inspired by either my own personal experiences or by other people's experiences that I have had both the honor and privilege to witness. Even though I wrote each story from one point of view, there is not one specific purpose behind each story. I hope that when you read each one, you will take away with you a special meaning that is all your own. It has been my pleasure to share these stories with you as I really do love and enjoy writing. Once again, thank you very much for your interest in my book and I hope you enjoy the journeys of life that I share with you. P.A.
