One Degree by Paul Wittwer
During a delightful visit by Jody's Mom, "Big Jody," and our dear friend Rhonda, the latter wanted to show us something online. Via amazon.com we were able to see the first 30 pages of this soon-to-be-published (in papgerback, available now for Kindle) life-affirming work, including the Dedications Page. There in the middle we read, "To Rhonda Lamothe, for becoming my guardian angel in some of my darkest hours." Rhonda was in tears describing a "crisis intervention" telephone conversation that began a nourishing friendship with the then-desperate author. Every couple of months Rhonda picks up Big Jody and they drive 75 miles for a sleepover. After a breakfast of bacon, eggs and cinammon raison toast they beat it back down the highway, but I swear I can still hear the flutter of wings.
