every day we make decisions.
some of our decisions are simple. what do i want for lunch today? leftover pizza sounds good; i'll have that.
other decisions are more complex. in which school should we enroll tessa? does she need something more challenging, or is she just fine where she is?
some decisions are based on what we want. what color streamers should we put up for zoe's birthday? her favorite color is green so i think we will go with green.
other decisions are based on necessity. we need to find a job in the next year or so. we will have to move wherever the job is, whether we like it or not.
in tiny sunbirds, far away, blessing's father abandons his family for another woman. financial need necessitates a move to live with blessing's grandparents. the effects on the family are life-altering--in both good ways and in tragic ways.
i think this novel should be a must-read for everyone. i didn't realize how much i had to learn until i started reading it. it has certainly made me think about the decisions that i make for my family and the impact those decisions may or may not have on their futures.
