Top notch tear jerker

I've read a few books like this that bring me to my knees. I'm almost at the end but I can't read more than a couple of paragraphs, if that, before I lose it. Like the rest of her books, it's about family, making mistakes and trying to rectify them. So, it brings a lot to mind for me about regrets and how to move forward in small steps. I realize, finally (in reading this particular book), that looking back doesn't work if you can't make peace and live in the present. You can't change the past but you can, genuinely, decide on what kind of person you want to be going forward and hopefully in time for it to matter. Reading this book reminds me of that struggle. It's why I can't read too much at a time because I'm aware of the mistakes I've made but at the same time, I'm aware of how I've been able to change myself and my relationship with my family today. I feel like Angel remembering how things use to be but also how they are now. I'm grateful.
