UPDATE 6 YEARS LATER: This is the only short story I have ever printed off and kept. I try to re-read at least once a year (and will be pulling it out today to re-read in the hammock). I love everything about the story and how you and the main character go from feeling hopeless and stressed, to hope and peace.
This story is truly one that has stuck with me for years. There is not one year that goes by that I don’t find myself thinking of Jennie Musgrave and her tattered and frazzled home and heart.
Written in 1888 by Agnes Sligh Turnbull, it is shockingly similar to life today over one hundred years later.
Please print it off and read it at least once a month, or when you feel overwhelmed, frazzled, and unsure what you need to do next.
Get a coffee or tea, print this off, and enjoy.
