Excerpt from HEAVEN, a novel – Ch. 35, “Eve’s Dinner Speech”

“When my mind drifts off to hurtful things, I acknowledge the pain, then move beyond it by replacing the thoughts with happier memories. After all, pain is part of life – it’s just one ingredient in the final mix that’s me. Who knows why things happen the way they do, but I believe it’s always our own choices that determine whether or not we rise to the challenge of being who we’re intended to be.”        © 2010 Kimberly Cain
