New author discovery!!

Andrea has found a new author that she absolutely loves!! Since her accident in the house on 10/15 she's had a lot of time to read and she began reading an author named Richard Paul Evans. He has written quite a few books, some set in Italy, where he resides part time. The latest book Andrea read was "The Perfect Day" and it's about a man who loses his job and decides to finish the novel that he's been writing for the past 4 years. He based it on his wife's relationship with her father and the final months of his father-in-laws life. Needless to say, he sells the manuscript, becomes a New York Times best selling author, and kind of forgets his promise to never leave his wife. In fact, he promises this to his father-in-law on his deathbed!! Well Rob, the main character, starts getting this visits for who he believes is an angel and is told that he has until New Years Day to get his life in order. Basically, he believes that he is dying and has to make amends in his life. The book has a really good twist, so I don't want to spoil it for anyone who might want to read it. Let's just say that I wish some people would get hit with the same attack of consciousness that Rob got hit with!!!

On a non-literary note, the Timmons family is moving!! The exact date is still up in the air but we have found an absolutely beautiful house to buy and we jumped on it!!! We wish we had found this house from the beginning. Then we wouldn't have had to go through what we have been going through with the house we are in now. This house is everything we could have ever DREAMED possible. Thank you for all your prayers and your messages of support. We could not have gotten through this horrific ordeal without you all. Keep checking back for pictures of the new house!!!
