Becky Galli was born into a family that valued the power of having a plan. With a pastor father and a stay-at-home mother, her 1960s southern upbringing was bucolic--even enviable. But when her brother, only seventeen, died in a waterskiing accident, the slow unraveling of her perfect family began.
Though grief overwhelmed the family, twenty-year-old Galli forged onward with her life plans--marriage, career, and raising a family of her own--one she hoped would be as idyllic as the family she once knew.
But life had less than ideal plans in store. There was her son's degenerative, undiagnosed disease and subsequent death; followed by her daughter's autism diagnosis; her separation; and then, nine days after the divorce was final, the onset of the transverse myelitis that would leave Galli paralyzed from the waist down.
Despite such unspeakable tragedy, Galli maintained her belief in family, in faith, in loving unconditionally, and in learning to not only accept, but also embrace a life that had veered down a path far different from the one she had envisioned. At once heartbreaking and inspiring, Rethinking Possible is a story about the power of love over loss and the choices we all make that shape our lives --especially when forced to confront the unimaginable.

barry_leftout.csv jj_observation.csv observation_found.csv prod_db3014_observation_update.csv update_observation.... Any idiot can face ... *" Any idiot can face a crisis: it's the day to day living that wears you out." I read this book in awe of Becky, her grit, her 'human-ness'. At the same time i was thinking this could very well be novel where you feel like the author inserts herself into the character. A novel because Becky's life is just that incredibly difficult, and full of love at the same time. Can all THIS happen to one woman? Yes it can. It did. And tho not quite the life she expected or planned, the author came out on top. READ THIS BOOK and appreciate what YOU have.
