Lacey's Room

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, Jun 21, 2010 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 121 pages
This book is an all-American, Southern way of living with best friends, teenagers and babies, Although struggles make us stronger, you have to know how to pray your way through life. Without it, I think a lot of us are left empty-hearted and an emotional mess, so to speak. We would all love to live in a “make-believe world” where everything was always perfect and where girls play with their baby dolls and boys with their cars and trucks. But it doesn’t work that way in real life. Baby dolls become real babies, and trucks become real objects. They both require a lot more of attention from us. We can’t just put them in a closet or toy chest whenever we feel tired of playing. This book is written with the best intentions of coaching girls and boys alike into the research of life and how it’s made. It also is written with the utmost respect for parents or single parents and the importance of staying in tune with your teenager, to always keep their confidence level lifted high. Sweet Memories by Candice J. Shipley

About the author (2010)

Candy-Momma, as she is still called today by her close friends who know of Lacey in her life, now resides in Social Circle, Georgia, with her husband, Phillip. They still have Lacey's room with all the pictures in place and a memorial garden with her favorite red Gerbera daisies and butterfly bushes where yellow butterflies gather. Candy is a successful barber at Southern Gentleman Barber Shop, and Phillip has started his own business, All Metal Welding. Kadee has come to visit and will hopefully always feel that she has a home away from any home she will ever have. Life goes on, but there is not one single day that passes that a thought or conversation isn't brought up about Lacey. All who knew her sorely miss her. She was the joy brought into many other lives. She will always be the child shared by her mother Anna and those around her. Candy will always wonder what she could have done differently to help Anna in her struggles. She believes that Anna is getting her life together and has all the confidence in the world that she will remain strong for her remaining child at home and will keep Kadee and La-La first in her life. This has been Candy's mission now for the past two years. Though it has taken her that long to get through the emotions and the strength to put it all in words, she has now completed her task of making sure her Lacey Bottoms did not remain "unwritten.
