The book contains, on a Christian platform, 38 different stories, anecdotes, and tips for surviving this “sandwich” generation of middle age, broken down into chapters. My favorite is chapter 18: I Proposed in a Chain Letter. You’ll have to actually read the book the find out why, but it was so funny! There are also all kinds of quotes, cartoons, and a great introduction that tie in great with the chapters. I laughed so hard while reading this book, but it also makes great points. It may be funny, but there is a seriousness to the whole concept and one that will help me as a “youth” to grow into my own middle age gracefully.
If you are a parent on the verge of taking care of both your children and your own parents or even if you are on the younger side, as I am, you should definitely read this book. It’s a lot of fun and has a great message, all written with our Lord in mind. It really is a heartwarming, lovely book.
