When Daddy's Going Away
"The best inheritance a parent can give his children
is a few minutes of his time each day." —O. A. Battista
When Anna Casamento Arrigo penned her soon-to-be-released book " When Daddy's Going Away,"she started the writing journey with a reflection, a snippet of her dad. It differs, however, because Anna's dad passed away when she was only 12.
" I don't pretend to honestly know what a child, who's going through the upheaval and sadness may experience during but, especially, after that divorce is finalized. All I have or, rather, am left with, is that sense of loss and the uncertainty that comes with not knowing."
I, suppose, in some aberrant way, it's best that I never had that sense of loss, conflict, pain, and separation or, even, alienation because parents ' contention toward each other becomes, in some ways, greater than the love they have or should have for their child or children. "When Daddy's Going Away," is my thought, my soul, and heart seeking to explore and, hopefully, allow some to remember THE CHILD! "
When Daddy's Going Away is a story penned from the author's heart, remembering the 'child,' and written for the children. Grab one for you and the little ones.
Of All That I Could Be!
Every child, at one time or another, has imagined being this creature or that. Of All That I Could Be! enables a child to pretend what life might be like as something else's. But, in the end, the message is clear, there is nothing more worthwhile than being ME!
