Heart of a Mother, written by Sheryl Roush, is a wonderful compilation of stories and inspiration for and about mothers and grandmothers. I have not yet had the opportunity to read the entire book, but what I have read is beautifully written, heartwarming, and enjoyable. Some of the excerpts I read brought back wonderful memories of my mother, whose loss I am struggling with this Mother’s Day.
One of the stories that I identified the most with was “Family Circus Christmas,” a tale of a mother trying to be June Cleaver and ending up a bit more like something from a comic strip. I have been there so many times, myself. Wanting life to be just so and feeling as if I had failed, when everyone around me was just as happy as could be with my efforts.
As a child, my Aunt Della was like a mother to me who nourished me with her chocolate chip cookies. I remember the warm feelings when I smelled a batch of her fresh baked cookies. In Heart of A Mother, Sheryl Roush and her contributors have captured those same kinds of feelings, feelings that will warm your heart and bring your mother close again. It’s a great read.
