Sincerity, hilarity, heartfelt love, with SuperMom charm Jeannie is someone we should all welcome in to our homes.Prior to this Goodreads giveaway I had no idea about Jeannie and her career However after reading this I feel like we are the best of friends.I m an empath I feel emotion than anyone else and this was chock full of nuts, soul, and compassion.It will have you laugh, cry, and split your pants laughing.Can you imagine a brain tumor can somehow put your whole life and future into an entirely different realm One that is positive for all I can t imagine her pain, her adversity, her courage to face the unthinkable.What I can note is I ve had a friend die from brain cancer and he always had carried this backpack around with him I had no idea that backpack was to keep him alive.I later learned he had stage 4 glioblastoma and passed away rather quickly from initial diagnosis leaving behind a wife and two handsome boys.I say this because life is short Life must be lived to the fullest I believe after reading this Jeannine had several angels on her shoulder.I also believe it was meant for a reason To slow down and enjoy what she may have been taking advantage of all those years.While she mentioned she s not going to write about God and faith she definitely has been touched by someone from up above.Her relationship with her family and friends has clearly grown from this alarming situation What we fail to realize is the toll it takes upon our loved ones when Super Moms get sick Jeannine is lucky to have such great support as not all of us have such a supportive system in place. When life gives you privilege, you make privilegeade. This was a deeply personal story I am a huge fan of Jim and Jeannie Gaffigan and I was there on Instagram when Jeannie had her brain surgery It shocked all of us fans because we know of the two, Jeannie is the health nut and she is so young, and they have 5 kids I felt a personal connection to this book because for 4 years, I have seen Jim Gaffigan perform here in Milwaukee on New Year s Eve please come back, we miss you Jim and we the audience enjoy knowing that he is here for the holidays spending time with his wife s family that live here I also felt personally connected because Jeannie talks about Lake Park, Froedert, and Columbia Hospital I have 3 kids and I can t imagine, and maybe I am a control freak like Jeannie is, but still, I can t imagine going from our normal hectic crazy everyday schedule, to going into brain surgery, not knowing if I would come out alive or be the same physically mentally again This story is about resilience Jeannie is a fighter, and even in the worst of times, she realizes the beauty of this terrible situation She finds a new lease on life and she learns what life is really about, enjoying the moment and being good to others I loved this book, and it was hard to put down I have always admired Jeannie and Jim s marriage Jeannie gets very personal in this book and you see that their marriage definitely went through some very hard times I enjoyed Jeannie talking about her faith and how God worked miracles into her diagnosis, surgery, and recovery This is a must read for any Gaffigan fan
