While everyone is SO consumed with the 50 Shades of Grey series..
(not to say I haven't read them)
But, I wanted to take some time to mention a book I read recently
by a fellow blogger that touched my heart.
Bloom was written by Kelle Hampton
She also has a blog which is so appropriately
titled "Enjoying the Small Things".
I first heard about this book on Instagram...
someone IG'd a picture of the cover and
I am always intrigued by book covers. I
quickly grabbed my Ipad and read
the description and download the
sample onto my iBooks. After quickly reading
the sample I then purchased my very own copy
and proceeded to read it in less than 24 hours.. and
I cried every.single.chapter.
It was the most touching book I have ever read.
The writing is phenomenal
and I felt like most of the book that I was sitting having a
conversation with her and she was recounting
all the moments just as they happened.
The book is written about Kelle's
daughter, Nella. All through Kelle's pregnancy
she was never given any indication to think anything was
wrong with the beautiful baby girl growing inside of her.
Nella was born with Downs Syndrome and this
book is just the beginning of her amazing story.
And it truly gives meaning to the title of the book..
finding beauty in the unexpected
This book left me feeling so touched, thankful and in awe
of God's grace. I totally recommend it.
