Saundra’s advice will resonate with all those out there looking for a reason to be happy. Through her story, she reminds the reader to realize that happiness is a mindset that can be chosen, and sorrow, pain and struggle are parts of life that need to co-exist with happiness in order for us to really appreciate it. We can choose to stay happy if we do not allow our circumstances to overpower our ability to life and enjoy life. Saundra goes through a lot of rough patches, but the most consistent thing she holds onto throughout her journey with George is her willingness to live life one day at a time, with all her heart.
