Huntsville author and businesswoman Linda Spalla has written Catch Your Breath, a series of touching meditations that will become a wisp of sanity and a day-to-day stabilizer.
This book retraces an eight month care-giving journey with Spalla's mother, captured in raw, candid images, truly becoming a walk in her shoes.
You will feel a kinship with the roller coaster of emotions; from anger, confusion, surprise, resentment, guilt and ambivalence, to finally relief, recovery and celebration. You will learn through the various vignettes some refreshingly practical information on such topics as finding sitters, managing medicine, dealing with sibling rivalry, contracting with Hospice, moving to assisted living, doing will preparation and other legalities as well as funeral planning.
You will laugh; you will sob; your heart will soar; your heart will break. You will find solace, encouragement and inspiration for one of life’s most daunting challenges.
