Some of the most priceless gifts can be discovered while waiting for something else.

We all spend precious time just waiting. We wait in traffic, grocery store lines, and carpool circles. We wait to grow up, for true love, and for our children to be born. We even wait to die. But while we work hard at this business of living, life can sometimes feel like one long, boring meeting. Even today, with instant gratification at our techno-laced fingertips, we can't escape the waiting place. Somehow, in between our texting and tweeting and living and dying, we end up there again and again.

In the voice of an old friend or a wise-cracking sister, Eileen Button takes us back to the days of curling irons and camping trips, first loves and final goodbyes, big dreams and bigger reality checks. With heart-breaking candor she calls us to celebrate the tension between what we hope for tomorrow and what we live with today.

Chock-full of humor and poignant insights, these stories will make you laugh and cry. They'll challenge you to enjoy-or at least endure-the now. As Eileen has learned, "To wait is human. To find life in the waiting place, divine."

Come discover miracles in the mundane. Come celebrate life in The Waiting Place.
