GIVE THE GIFT OF HOPE ~ A Book of Quotes

A BOOK OF QUOTES MAKES A PERFECT GIFT!

book of quotesIt took a great and mighty shove of the Universe to get the most recent revision of my book of quotes, FINDING HOPE, Quotes & Inspiration, out in print in time for the holidays. This book is designed especially for the woman facing the aging process. Choosing my favorite quotes on topics such as Strength, Change, Beauty, Fear, Wisdom and more, there is something for everyone.

Access the Table of Contents, a description of the book and reviews by visiting the book page on Amazon. Finding Hope is also available for Kindle, but buyers seem to prefer the paperback version. One reader writes, “it’s one (book) to keep on your nightstand. . . within easy reach when you need it.” Blank pages at the back of the book provide a convenient place to store additional quotes.

I hope you’ll take a few minutes to check out the latest version of FINDING HOPE. Consider ordering a few extra copies for holiday gift giving. Amazon promises to get them to you in time, especially if you order right away. Give the gift of hope this holiday season.

Thank you and happy holidays to you and yours!

Dorothy

Aging Abundantly Blogs in a Book

Aging Abundantly Blogs in a Book

Best of Aging Abundantly BookBlog posts can pile up and get lost online. I’ve had many requests for an ebook version of the blogs I’ve been posting since 2010 anReleasedd I’ve finally managed to put one together. It’s the first of two volumes. At some point, depending on the length, I plan to make it available as one volume on Kindle and if there is a demand in paperback as well.

It feels as though I’ve come to the end of an era. It’s not that I’ve written everything there is for me to write on the topic of aging, but I’ve gotten past the shock and awe of the midlife adjustments. I’m pretty sure I will never stop questioning and evaluating the process of getting old, but that something significant that happens at midlife, when you change from being young and looking toward the future with hope and anticipation, to someone who values congruence, wisdom and depth in all things seems to be complete, insofar as anything like that is ever complete. My thoughts and writings on the process between then and now are contained in these blogs. Now, I will be leaning into the process of what is next to learn on this part of my journey.

If you are entering midlife, or anywhere along the continuum of becoming a bearer of wisdom, you may enjoy reading this book blogs. Perhaps it will give you food for thought for your own journey, or at the very least, provide you with a companion along the way. I always welcome feedback and alternate perspectives. These things are a work in progress, always.

FINDING HOPE

Quotes & Inspiration

Mounting life pressures, unexpected change or disappointment can leave us depleted and without hope. In this book the author gives her readers just the lift they need to make it through hard times. Packed with insight and inspiration, this carefully crafted collection of vignettes and quotes by some of the world’s greatest teachers, will help you right your ship and find balance in your life once again. Available for Kindle on Amazon

REVIEWS

“This little book really resonated with me in so many areas. It’s clear the author has lived a life like many of us reflecting a few regrets and insecurities, some hurts and some loss combined with much success and happiness. I love the way she has learnt how to be positive and turn life’s tragedies and challenges into times of learning and growing. As I hurtle towards my three score years and ten I was beginning to feel depressed and conscious of the time ticking away. This book has come just at the right time to encourage me and make me appreciate all that I have rather than focusing on the things I don’t have. I think many women over 50 will enjoy the inspiration and quotes. It’s a book you can dip in and out of picking up little gems of encouragement just when you need it most.”    Pat Price,  Babyboomers Retiring

“I keep my copy by my bed and the pages are already dogeared from reading i t so much. Whenever I pick it up I seem to find something that gives me hope and lifts my spirits!”  says fifty-two year old Cindy L.

“My kids left home in September and I’m still trying to adjust, to find myself again and Dorothy’s book has been just what I needed.” ~ Joyce, 49

“I’ve been taking care of my elderly mother full time for the last several months. I don’t have time to sit down and read a book but I can grab a few minutes here and there to read one of Dorothy’s little stories or reflect on a quote.  The book has saved my life. I even read bits and pieces to Mom when she is having a bad day and it really seems to help her.”   Martha L. (62)

Caring for Mom ~ Midlife Reflections

Caring for Mom ~ Midlife Reflections

caring for mom coverCaring for Mom is a collection of my blogs and articles written during the year prior to my mother’s death and the year following. It was a time in my life when great change was taking place, inside and out and I found peace and solace in writing, some of which I’d like to pass on to you. Midlife is a period of transition, and while difficult at times, I wouldn’t change it for the world. It gave me everything I needed, and more, to set my life on a better, more authentic path. I hope that Caring for Mom will provide you with food for thought for your own journey and a little comfort along the way. You are not alone.

READ WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT Caring for Mom 

REVIEWS

“This beautiful book deeply touched my heart. Not only has it been a source of comfort as I travel the path of taking care of my parents, it has also been a light for that path and my life path. Each story she shares of her life is a snapshot of life’s passages. What a joy and comfort to read this book. To know that I am not alone, that I am part of a universal experience. Dorothy’s ability to touch my heart often left me in tears, but just as often those tears turned into laughter, just like this path I am on.”  ~ Jill Davis, Life Coach

~~~~~

“I recently re- read excerpts from this insightful book that opened a wellspring of my own memories. Taking Care of Mom invites the reader to experience the mother/daughter relationship in a profound and moving way. In this age of high momentum,usually separated from our families by too many miles and often losing sight of what is truly important and precious in the familial relationship, Dorothy Sander takes hold of our hearts with her words and brings the reader down to earth, but in a loving way. My memories of my mother are far different from Dorothy’s, yet they are also the same in a significant way. The book makes a daughter reflect and, if read while mom is still around, can perhaps change the way the relationship goes.It’s a gentle journey that stirs up a kettle of emotions.”   ~ Sylvia Resnick, Author

~~~~~

“With courage and wisdom Dorothy Sander spills truth onto every page of this rare book. Uneasy topics are handled with skill and her personal experience is beautiful, painful, raw, and real. Readers will never be alone on similar difficult journeys when they can tap into Dorothy’s insights. Her style and ability as a wordsmith make this volume a joy, and the stark realities it contains make it important reading for anyone caring for an aging loved one.”  ~ Sue Ann Crockett, Columnist and Author of Gravy Days

~~~~~

“While I found Caring for Mom difficult to read from a personal standpoint because it prompted me to revisit memories of my own mother and the myriad challenges faced and emotions felt in caring for her before her death, I admired the author’s wisdom, insight, perspective, and ability to put into words what so many of us feel and are unable to articulate. Her honesty is balanced and her gift for drawing the reader into situations and the emotions they enkindled is very real and very tangible. I found Caring for Mom to be quite an inspiring read.”   ~ Maria Maggi,  Editor

~~~~~

“Dorothy provides an open and loving description of a common journey between mother and daughter, one that I traveled as well. There is an emotional resonance in reading her words that is at the same time painful and comforting. I appreciate the effort she made in this work as well as her talent for expression.”  ~ Suzanne Caplan, Author and Founder of Women Etcetera!
