Conceived nearly 20 years ago by Donna Marie Bailey and "sister" friend Charlotte Noyes, this book was a dream of creating a helpful, inspiring, practical, and yet spiritual collection of insightful, humor-laden writings, both original and selected, coupled with breath- and heart-taking photographs. Begun prior to COVID and prior to Bailey's cancer diagnosis in 2020, this book takes you on a journey that becomes your own in many ways. Because we are living in challenging times, with so many unknowns, worry and stress can feel overwhelming at times. The reason for this book was and is a response to this and hopefully provides perspectives and answers you may not have thought of. We hope you like our debut book as you gaze outside and inside your own window.
