Format: Paperback
This is a book with lovely stories that then provide life lessons.
One of my favourites was about a mother and her child and their daily routine. The child plays in the garden, whilst the mother attends to chores, then they have a catnap before walking into town. They window shop each day because they don't have a lot of money. They enjoy simple pleasures. One day they experience some bullies in the market square and the mother intervenes. In this particular tale, it shows that regardless of what we have, we always have something to share. If we don't speak up for what is right, who will? We can never let the strong abuse the weak. When we need the power we have it. It's always our responsibility to care for those less fortunate than ourselves. Parents can teach so much to their children through their actions. We feel good about ourselves if we do what is right for us! The book shows how even when we are very young, we learn things daily that continue to inform us in our lives throughout adulthood.

Such a joy to read a collection of narratives and poetry that is well-organized, thoughtful, and resonates with authenticity. Dr. Cohen has produced an extraordinary work that captures human inspiration and aspiration at its very best.

A Gifted Book from a Gifted Poet and Doctor 12 Jun. 2008
By T. Sofi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A gifted book from a gifted poet, doctor, and anthologist. "A Blessing in Disguise" flows gently from its soothing cover to its final page. Cohen's poems provide lovely transitions from one author to the next. Cohen has amassed an impressive collection of stories and storytellers. The intimacy she has evoked from some of our more influential individuals is compelling and applicable.

Wisdom from many in one book 7 May 2008
By J. Galassi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book contains a lot of wisdom from writers that I respect and some that I had never heard of. I think we all can look back and recognize a life lesson we've learned through hardship and pain. One of the most valuable aspects of this book is the list of recommended reading throughout the book. I've recommended "Blessing" to my family and friends.
