Get ready to laugh, cry, smile and think. You will never look at life the same way again.
Imagine yourself inside a parent's worst nightmare - within the 6 minutes your child lies unconscious.
Each second is passing faster than the last.
The minutes are mounting.
Your hope is dwindling.
The doctor, who has been working feverishly to revive your child has since stopped and is now heading toward you.
Rarely do we know life changing events as they are happening, but this time you know.
You know deep down, that in a few seconds, after a few words, your life is going to change forever.
All you keep saying to yourself as the doctor approaches is,
"Just don't say it.
Just don't say it.
Just don't say 'time of death'."
"6 Minutes Wrestling with Life" is an emotionally riveting story of one family's refusal to never give up.
To keep moving forward under tremendous emotional pain and astronomical odds.
To be able to continue to live, despite dying inside.
To love, in the midst of loss.
To understand that "Every Breath Is Gold."
Excerpt from "6 Minutes Wrestling With Life"
MEMBER OF A SECRET CLUB
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust
There is a club in this world you do not join knowingly.
One day you are just a member.
It is “The Life Changing Events Club.”
The fee to join the club is hurt beyond belief, payable in full, up front, for a lifetime membership.
The benefit of the club is a newfound perspective on life, and a deep understanding that you may not be happy about your current situation, but you can be happy in your current situation.
The only rule of the club is you can never let on, not even once, that your life has completely changed.
The club does not provide a directory of its members, but when you look into a member’s eye, you can tell that they, too, are part of the
club. Members are allowed to exchange brief eye contact that says, “I didn’t know.”
Being a member of this club is the last thing anyone intentionally wants in their life.
Being a member of this club is the best thing that ever happens to a person in their life, and there is not a person who would ever give up their membership.
If you really look and know what you are looking for, you can spot the clubs members. They are the ones who perform a random act of kindness; people who do something for someone who can never repay them. They are the people spreading joy and optimism and lifting people’s spirits even when their own heart has been broken.
I have paid my dues. My lifetime membership arrived today, not by mail, but by a deep inner feeling I cannot describe.
It is the best club I never wanted to be part of.
But I am - for life.
"6 Minutes Wrestling With Life" is much more than a wrestling book. It is a book about life, unconditional love and belief.
I have never read such an inspirational book in my life.
