  60. Honestly, Jessi, I cry. I think crying gets the hurt and stress out of you. I also pray. Then, after I wash my face and sigh...I read! LOL Stress of the family kind is the worst, I think. Stress meaning heartbreak, to me. The only thing we can do when these things happen is let it out in conversation with a trusted one, cry and go on... Thank you for offering a book that might help others relate to a stress and how to deal with it. It's a good thing!! :] Deborah/TheBookishDame
