As the respectable wife of the town preacher, Patty June Clymer never thought she'd have to worry about a cheating husband. But when things come to a head, Patty decides to take charge of her life by kicking her no-good husband out her house, and getting a total makeover at the popular local salon. With a new spiky black haircut and a new outlook on life, Patty goes from mousy and meek to living large and in charge, and fairly starts a revolution in the small town of Blessings, Georgia.
I thought Count Your Blessings was a fantastic story of rebirth and finding yourself again. I know plenty of people that have had to start their lives over again after a failed relationship crashed and burned. There are so many out there that can understand the emotional pains it takes to rebuild both your life, reputation and your self esteem when it all falls apart. Count Your Blessings is a story that sets a perfect example of rebuilding yourself and the world you live in and the process it takes to face it all. Its short but every page is delightfully wonderful. Patty is a great reminder to everyone that strength is always within you and that no matter how bad it hurts life is still waiting to embrace you with open and victorious arms. Even for Patty in Blessings.
