This book is about ordinary life events, experiences, and relationships that can teach you lessons for living a more fulfilling life.
From the Middle East to his family's hometown of Chennai in Eastern India and beyond, the author shares meaningful insights from what-at first glance-may seem like the mundane.
For instance, children often demonstrate sensitivity to the needs of others far beyond their age. Where adults hide, fearing what the world may think, children reach out boldly to do what they feel is right. Their expressions of love, trust, and loyalty are far more genuine than that of adults. If we only stopped to observe and learn from them, we'd find solutions to problems that plague us.
The author also shares lessons from his long-lasting marriage with Rachel, which has had many ups and downs (but the ups have always been more plentiful). The two are friends and prayer partners with strong, independent views who love each other even when they're at odds.
Throughout this book, the author argues that no matter how insignificant, transient, and ordinary certain interactions seem to be, you can glean something from them with a sensitive and receptive heart.
