During this election season, we are often reminded of tough economic times in terms of job loss, struggles to pay bills, affording medical care...
As a victim of corporate layoffs more than once, the rollercoaster was no joyride, especially as a single female I never depended on anyone to survive. Like the Miami summers, I had periods of sun and prosperity followed by dark clouds and difficult times Thankfully I have the most incredible mother who taught me that hard work, faith and appreciating the simple things in life, will lead you to greater things-- accomplishments you may not have imagined.
It's often those things which we take for granted or don't fully understand or appreciate that give us the strength and power to overcome obstacles. It happened for me and others.
What does this have to do with cats, you wonder? Good question. True stories of despair turned triumphant motivate and inspire us. Therefore, I would like to recommend to pick up a special book The Chronicles of Zee and Zoey.
This is the story of one woman, Deb Barnes, who lost her job. But her hardships were a string of them that started years before. However, Deb found the silver lining in this dark period that propelled her to where she is today that she is now a highly respected author and blogger. It's just a matter of time before talk show giants like Ellen DeGeneres are knocking on her door. Would this have happened had she not lost her job? Perhaps not. Her inspiration--her cats Zee and Zoey! Who would have thought!
Erma Bombeck meets Seinfeld ShowThe story itself is an inspirational and heartfelt account of Deb's life with her furry felines, the invaluable lessons they taught her, and the love story between Zee and Zoey. Deb writes with the humorous style of the late Erma Bombeck, combined with the uncanny ability of Seinfeld Show – turning the everyday nothing’s of life into an incredible story about something! Discussing real topics as divorce, moving, home renovations, and unemployment, anyone can relate to her trials and tribulation.
Not to mention, the book comes beautifully wrapped with leopard tissue paper and a gorgeous bookmark that makes a great gift for any cat lover in your life.
I highly recommend this book! And if you say you're not a cat person, you will love this book even more! Deb also had many dogs and you'll follow her journey from dog owner to Cat Woman! You will smile, cry and laugh and laugh some more.
