When I hear about awful tragedies in the world, I want to shelter my kids and keep them home when they are safe. When they are sick, I want to find out what is wrong and have it ‘fixed’ right away. I could easily live in fear of their precious little lives if I didn’t watch myself and trust God with their lives. Bad things happen and it shapes who we are and how we care for our loved ones.
Some parents have gone through a rough time in their childhood that they want to shield their children. The author of “We’ll Always Have Paris” lost her father when she was a teenager. I couldn’t imagine. That loss shaped her adulthood an parenting. In fact, she was haunted by the fear of death.
In an attempt to jam-pack her daughter Katie’s mental scrapbook with memories, she decided to take trips with her daughter to Paris. She started when she was 8 and continued for the next 8 years visiting more than a dozen European locations.
During these trips, she let go of her fear of death and allowed her daughter to teach her to enjoy life.
The book “We’ll Always Have Paris” is a heart-warming book mingled with hilarious observations of life. Pick up your own copy for a relaxing Summer read.
