I had a terribly tough time reading that book the first time around. One night I was determined to read x number of pages. I started going into labor but sort of blew off the signs (this was my third pregnancy, and I have always had super fast labors so I should have known better, but I am rather pigheaded….) and decided to try and finish the number of pages I’d predetermined I wanted to try and finish that night before I awoke my husband. I wasn’t having much success in getting to where I needed to be so I woke my husband and threw the book in my suitcase and we took off to the hospital. I ended up going into labor enroute and had the baby in the back of our Suburban. It took me probably 5 years to pull that book out again and attempt to reread it. I was successful, but it was still a hard read for me. I know a gazillion people say it was a life changing book for them, but I thought it was a rather dry read.
its out of control the abuse of the system. The truly disadvantaged are going to pay the ulimate price because of the lazy and the greedy that have bankrupted the system. The middle class don’t have a snowballs chance in hell either. If I didn’t have faith in a Higher Power, I don’t know how I could go on day after day. There is always hope, but I don’t place it in man, either to the left or the right.
