The Waiting Place by Eileen Button
From the publisher, “A collection of essays describing the beauty and humor that can be found in what often feels like a most useless state—The Waiting Place.
We all spend precious time just waiting. We wait in traffic, grocery store lines, and carpool circles. We wait to grow up, for true love, and for our children to be born. We even wait to die. But amazing things can happen if we open our eyes in The Waiting Place and peer into its dusty corners. Sometimes relationships are built, faith is discovered, dreams are (slowly) realized, and our hearts are expanded.”
This book was amazing. It was beautifully written and poignant. Each chapter could stand on it’s own but yet they all weave together. I savored each chapter and was blessed. I have been in “the waiting place” recently and reading this book was as a balm for my soul. I felt as if I could begin to see what beauty could be found in the waiting places I’ve been.
I plan to buy this book for some of my friends and family. I am so glad that I got to review this book. I cannot say enough good things about it. Read it. You won’t regret it.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
