I was reading ALMOST THERE, ALMOST, I can recall literally laughing out loud, talking to myself, crying to myself, crying
out loud, putting down the book and walking away, thinking there is no way all these things could happen, picking it back
up because I had to know what else would happen, and also identifying with a few of the issues that affect us ALL! I thought
Sylvia was special, a real performer, and ARTIST, no doubt. I thought she was nice, sweet, encouraging, and she most definitely
IS... The book tells of a woman and life that is SO amazing and crazy and HUMAN, that just seeing Sylvia, you would NOT have
a clue! Just talking with her, SURE she's amazing, but still NO CLUE. The content caught me off guard and I loved that. It
took me places, that I have and have not been, I loved that. It took me back to some places, I thought I was OVER, but emotions
flooded out of me like a waterfall at times. I actually called to laugh and cry and thank her for allowing me to do so! Thanked
her for sharing things that, although I knew I was not alone in experiencing, I felt alone in experiencing it in MY WORLD
and I now know I am not alone. This is what this book will do for MANY. It's a book for all and a story that inspires you
to dare to DO and BE exactly who you want to be! Sylvia Traymore Morrison is not just ALMOST THERE, she is THERE! :-)
think it's funny that you got excited when you had reached 500 Facebook friends. Now you have over 2,800. That doesn't surprise
me at all, because you are SUCH a woman of God and I look forward to Him doing so many more huge things for you.
book: I got it last night. Today I thought that I would begin reading just a little bit of it while I was taking a break eating...that
was at 3:30p.m. CST this afternoon. From that point forward, I NEVER, not once, set down that book, until I had finished reading
the absolute last page (yeah, the "About the Author" one) at 8:30p.m. tonight. It's so funny, because when I got
it from the post office last night, I had told my "little sister" about it. So while I was driving, her gasps and
"OH MY GOODNESS!!"s, JUST from looking at the titles in the Table of Contents and reading little tidbits caused
me to make her put it down because I didn't want her to ruin anything for me (She's almost 19 by-the-way). With such excitement
she literally was like "Oh my goodness! I can't WAIT til you're done with it so I can read it!
Your book is breathtakingly
inspiring and sobering. I was already looking up to you from the time I met you, but now you've inspired me SO MUCH more to
keep striving for what I KNOW God has in store for me.
Hey Sylvia! Wowwww! What a ride I had reading your book Almost There, Almost! Girrl I was feeling your love, your
joy, your pain and your sorrows! You have been thru the fire! Congratulations for all your triumphs! Girl you're still standing
and guess what? God ain't thru with you yet!
Awesome read - this book has truly inspired me...Sylvia Bunny Traymore Morrison's captivating autobiography had me
read from beginning to end in one day...I simply could not put it down. Morrison's tale of triumphs and setbacks truly shows
the reader that life is a teacher and she has certainly been an astute student. The book helped me to reflect more positively
on mistakes I've made in the past, to be honest with myself and to turn negatives into positives so others will learn from
the mistakes you've made.
