The Stages of ME – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat and Think With Your Taste Buds – Desserts
‘We all have a beginning, middle, and eventually an end. The simple things can become so major in an appreciation of a true work. We are all works of art with our own complexities. I often find myself standing before a person as if in a museum, trying to observe the creation and realness beyond the layers. We all have so many layers. It is almost like a person’s life is a script on a theme tablet and he or she flips to the page that fits a situation. You know it’s true! In many ways this ties into our trust issues. We all have them! Do we trust enough to show our realness, or are we guarded out of fear? Do we change our tablet daily?
Life is a ‘stage’ and our Director is our Maker. He wrote the script and directs us through the many stages of Me as we go through life. Author Kathy Henderson takes us through her own personal script as she discovers the different stages of her own life. As we all know, life has its ups and downs and how we handle them and prepare for future stages depends on the faith we have not only in ourselves but also the faith we have in those touching our lives and more importantly our Director.
Kathy loved helping people, so with the help and faith of her Director, she became a Therapist in Physical and Cognitive Rehabilitation. She became the strength for those without strength. She became the sounding board for those with no one else to voice to. She even became the shoulder for those whose loved ones went on to a better, healthier place. But when she herself was struck down with a rare muscular disease, she became one of her own patients.
The strength displayed by this woman is amazing. With her own health threatening to slip over the edge, she never gives up faith in her Director as He takes her from stage to stage in life. When fear creeps into her children’s minds, she’s there to ease it away. Even when her husband is diagnosed with a heart disease, she still stands her ground and follows the script given her.
Kathy Henderson is an incredible woman with incredible strength. As she explains to us, life comes in different stages and our Director will guide us through all of them. The Stages of ME is a very uplifting book that everyone who has ever felt sorry for themselves should read.
