Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Fresh from the Second City troupe in Toronto, Gilda Radner created such memorable characters as Emily Litella and Roseanne Roseannadanna as a member of the original cast of Saturday Night Live. The wife of Gene Wilder, Gilda was plagued by persistent health problems and two miscarriages, and was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1986. Brave, funny, and painfully honest, the twentieth-anniversary edition of It's Always Something is the story of Gilda's journey while living with cancer and her determination to continue laughing. "Cancer," she said, "is about the most unfunny thing in the world." But Gilda's gutsy and unique sense of humor never left her as she describes two years of cancer treatment -- surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatment, as well as the high and low points of her own career. Told as only Gilda could tell it, and newly revised to include a resource guide for those living with cancer, It's Always Something is the inspiring story of a courageous, funny woman determined to enjoy life no matter the circumstances.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Can you ever really know if love is true? And if it is, should you stop at anything to get it? Two decades ago, Erin Edwards was sure she'd already found the love of her life: Nate Lawson. Her first love. The one with whom she shared everything--dreams of the future, of children, plans for forever. The one she thought she would spend the rest of her life with. Until one terrible night when Erin made a mistake Nate could not forgive and left her to mourn the relationship she could never forget or get over. Today, Erin is contentedly involved with a phenomenal guy, maneuvering a successful and exciting career, and raising a great daughter all on her own. So why would the name "Nate Lawson" be the first thing to enter her mind when her boyfriend asks her to marry him? In the wake of the proposal, Erin finds herself coming unraveled over the past, and the love she never forgot. The more she tries to ignore it and move on, the more it haunts her. Always Something There to Remind Me is a story that will resonate with any woman who has ever thought of that one first love and wondered, "Where is he?" and "What if...?" Filled with Beth Harbison's trademark nostalgia humor and heart, it will transport you, and inspire you to believe in the power of first love.

Book excerpt: The week before Easter 2013. Rev. Jean Niven Lenk was busy preparing Holy Week observances at the church she served. But she could not ignore the nagging backache that had dogged her for months. In between her pastoral duties that week, she underwent a variety of tests. And then, on Good Friday - the most somber day on the Christian calendar - she received the devastating diagnosis that changed everything: Stage IV cancer. Overwhelmed by the sudden change in her life from pastor to patient, she found an outlet for her raw and often conflicting emotions by writing a blog about her daily experience of fighting cancer. The result is a sometimes irreverent but always authentic account of her struggle which reveals how the "stuff" she has experienced has become fertilizer for a life brimming with meaning, purpose, hope, and love.

Download or read book Aquinas’ Proofs for God’s Existence written by D. Bonnette and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 2012-12-06 with total page 216 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The purpose of this study is to investigate the legitimacy of the principle, "The per accidens necessarily implies the per se," as it is found in the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas. Special emphasis will be placed upon the function of this principle in the proofs for God's existence. The relevance of the principle in this latter context can be seen at once when it is observed that it is the key to the solution of the well known "prob lem of infinite regress. " The investigation of the principle in question will be divided into two Parts. A preliminary examination of the function of the principle will be made in Part I: Domains Other Than That of Creature-God. The domains to be considered in this Part are those of accident-substance, change, and knowledge. Employing what is learned of the function of the principle in these areas of application, Part II: The Domain of Creature-God will analyze the role of the principle in the proofs for God's existence. This latter Part will constitute the greater portion of the book, since the domain of creatures in their relation to God is the most significant application of the principle in the writings of St. Thomas. In the course of this investigation, relevant analyses by St. Thomas' commentators - both classical and contemporary - will be considered. Finally, in light of the insights offered by St.

Download or read book Rose Petals & Gun Powder: A Saga Noir written by Jean E. Dugas and published by AuthorHouse. This book was released on 2010-02 with total page 608 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This encompassing tale of matter-bending storytelling begins on the lip of the Gulf of Mexico, 1947. Sampson Apocalypse' Baker and Edison Thomas, polar opposites and WWII veterans, were not born under the star of luck. Their nomadic lives led as mercenary handymen --traveling the US in a patchy 1938 Ocean Blue LaSalle sedan outfitted with an Allison Liberator engine and the remnants of useful armor plating --have found their way through a partially sealed aqueduct discovered during a supernatural storm. Moments after their unorthodox arrival, they wander out from the decaying tunnel and discover a lost yet grand metropolitan island set out to sea, one haunted by the remains of humans fused to buildings and set free to feed; ravens who see these newly arrived combatants' activities and seemingly both help and hinder their progress; villains who defy the laws of both mortality and physics; and a mysterious woman who literally has the curse of death embalmed in her fingertips, never knowing the touch of human contact while carrying with her the most beautiful desires ever known to life. All are among the denizens of Static City, unwilling fallout from The Accident' --an event upon the island of measured unfolding origin that changed all they knew forever. Rose Petals and Gunpowder, an intricately spun fictional novel combining carefully crafted elements of action, adventure, emotional interaction with larger-than-life characters, science fiction and suspense transport the reader into a world of tilted reality, changing what they think is possible through creative and risk-taking writing. This work by the author is the newest of a series of non-linear novels --currently the fourth completed --competing to be a fresh offering for the discerning adult audience seeking a fulfilling reading experience. This title joins the previously published Twisted Delirium: The Infinite Dream.
