Have you ever felt like you were running from something or perhaps looking for something that is missing? If you have, this book is for you! This book is a fantastic inspirational work that will make you look closer at your life and perhaps make you realize you are not where you thought you were. Kim Meeder along with her husband own and operate Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch. Its main goals are to rescue abused and neglected horses and pair them with disadvantaged children. Laurie Sacher is a team leader for Kim, the author of this book.

Laurie was the one continually running in her life, running from life’s problems, from relationships, from God, but never even realized it. To soothe her aching heart she decides to rescue an abused and neglected dog, however in the end the dog is the one doing the rescuing. Mia, the dog has all kinds of health problems from her abused life, along with diabetes. Mia ends up loosing her eyesight, but still she is the one who rescues Laurie from her lifestyle. Here are a couple of quotes from the book: “When we choose joy, our problems don’t go away, but our sorrow and low self-esteem do.” “God is with us, whether we are running away from him or to him.” At the end of the book Laurie says, “It’s true. For the rest of my life, I’ll be grateful for this fact: my dog was blind…but now I see.”

MY THOUGHTS: This is a must read! What a book, just make sure you have the tissue close. It makes you take a look at your life and see things that you might not have seen before. A very good inspirational book and an easy read! Grab this one to read, you will not be sorry. I recommend it to everyone!
