Growing up in Cleveland, Ohio I am familiar with a retired columnist for the Cleveland Plain Dealer by the name of Regina Brett. Even after moving away from my home turf, my mother from time to time talked about one of Brett’s columns that struck a chord in her. Many northern Ohio folks have enjoyed their morning coffee with Regina’s latest column in hand… A simple pleasure.
Inspired by personal crisis, Regina Brett decided to write her first book, God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life’s Little Detours. It was quite the rage when it was first published in 2010, and mom insisted I read it. So I did… That was quite a few summers ago, and that I am not able to make my summer trek to visit Cleveland this season, I find myself longing for the nostalgia of that sweet summer read curled up on my mom’s sofa under the ceiling fan. It is a great book that reminds us to keep our priorities straight and our life in focus. At a time when our lives needs some healthy change, Brett’s book is a breath of fresh air.
Regina Brett has several new books out. I am inspired to snatch a summer read under the ceiling fan on our sunporch? What a nice idea!
