Choose Your Days by Paula S Wallace
I recently discovered a solution for this dilemma:
Choose Your Days by Paula S. Wallace.
This is an enchanting picture book with absolutely delightful illustrations.
The message is appropriate for children. But the book may resonate more deeply with adults who have weathered the passage of time.
It would be an excellent gift for someone dealing with a personal crisis, surviving a loss, or starting a new chapter in life.
Meet Corky, who on the day of her birth is presented with calendars for all of her days.
The days come and go. Corky grows. The calendar pages diminish. Eventually only a precious few of her allotted days remain in the balance. She decides to make her remaining days "sunny" by filling them with those things that bring her joy.
With warm and touching illustrations, Wallace brings the close of Corky's life to a satisfying and heartwarming conclusion.
I picture myself sending copies to individuals for whom there is no greeting card on earth that distills the moment in quite the way that this book does. I'm stocking up on gift copies right now.
When a greeting card is not enough/not quite right, this charming little book will be the perfect expression.
Paula S Wallace is one talented artist.
I was fascinated to learn that she originally created a series of paintings of an individual she named Corky. After she had 35 Corky paintings, the story became clear to her. It was through art that Corky's life revealed itself.
Ah! The power of images.
