You Are The Best Medicine
I recently came across a book called, You Are The Best Medicine, by Julie Aigner Clark. It is a children's book that illustrates how mom will be sick and may look different. It helps to explain the changes surrounding a mom’s illness in a way that a young child can understand. The children really are the best medicine, for they provide laughter and happiness. Knowing and feeling that unconditional love is profound and just that alone can motivate a mom to endure treatment. Being present for their children is what our moms strive for.
