Moments of Seeing - Reflections from an Ordinary Life (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
“To really value life is to know: the best moments are often the ones we might miss altogether if we weren’t paying attention.”
In this long-awaited collection of essays from her popular blog, Katrina Kenison gives voice to the simple joys and private longings of women everywhere. Here are the deeply felt and beautifully articulated moments of life as it is really lived — the triumphs and tumult of parenting, the ups and downs of friendship, the challenges of marriage, the delicate balance between solitude and intimacy, the fleeting beauty of the seasons, the death of loved ones, the march of time.
It is a special privilege to enter the life of a writer as candid, as quietly courageous, as Katrina. “Wake up,” she gently reminds us. “Be grateful. Keep an eye out for wonder.”
So it is that we begin to discover the sacred in the everyday. We learn to embrace rather than deny the wealth of experience an ordinary life can hold. And we find in these pages the very companionship we seek for the bewildering, bewitching journey through midlife and beyond.
