Fede in Dio, innanzitutto, ma anche fiducia nel proprio nucleo familiare, che si stringe attorno alla mamma e moglie e che, con lei, esprime in queste pagine un cammino di speranza e di riflessione.Lungo le pagine che Erica ci consegna, emerge un desiderio profondo e condiviso di continuare a stare nella vita con un sorriso, nonostante l. a. fatica e il dolore, nonostante i momenti difficili. are available in un coro, accanto alla voce dell’autrice di questo piccolo e profondo “diario spirituale”, ecco dunque manifestarsi tutte le domande, i dubbi, le angosce e le speranze di lei e dei componenti della sua famiglia (il marito Davide e i tre figli) che sempre, in questi casi, sono i primi a dover condividere il dramma della malattia.La porta gialla – quell’uscio di fronte al quale Erica accoglie il referto medico – diventa allora l’immagine di una soglia che conduce a una vita mutata dal dolore; e che diventa occasione non in line with disperare, ma in step with riscoprire una nuova prospettiva personale, familiare, amicale. E, soprattutto, in step with meditare in modo consapevole sul senso profondo del credere in famiglia.Un piccolo dono fatto a ogni lettore.
