Description

It's easy to think that meaning, fulfillment, and bliss are out 'there', somewhere outside of our daily routine. But in this playful yet profound reflection on awareness, the compelling voice of a self-described errant wife and delinquent mother reveals the happiness at the bottom of the laundry basket, the love in the kitchen sink, and the peace possible in one's own backyard. Readers follow the author through youthful ambition and self-absorption, beyond a broken marriage, and into the steady calm of an 'ordinary' life. Household chores and caregiving tasks become opportunities for self-examination, lessons in relationship, and liberating moments of selflessness. Miller shows that with attention, it's the little things - even the unexpected, unpleasant, and unwanted things - that count.
