It's 6:00 a.m., and four-year-old Amanda shuffles into her parent's bedroom, where she finds Daddy sleeping in what normally is Mommy's spot. She innocently wakes him up from a deep sleep "Daddy...can you make me pancakes?" Daddy replies, "Yes, sure honey."
Neither Amanda nor Daddy have their normal energetic smile. Not because they were tired, but because Mommy didn't make it home last night. Cancer unexpectedly took her.
Now Daddy must find a way to care for three small children and his six-year-old son while holding down a new executive position within his company.
For the moment, making pancakes is thing that keeps their family together.

This heartwarming story was written and narrated so well that it allowed me to go on this journey of love, heartbreak, laughter, and tears. As I listened to the words of this story, I was able to open myself up to feel the emotions about those who have passed away in my life and it brought a new perspective and sense of comfort to me.
I recommend this book to anyone open to seeing life, love and all the in between from another angle.
This true story as told by a father of 3 young children of their journey of life, love , loss and recovery was so heartwarming! The wonderful Mom the family had! The book is brilliantly written. The narrator was great! I highly recommend this book, inspirational to say the least!
