This book is the chronological story of how I met and became a part of Mary’s family. Mary constantly inspired life lessons about how to truly live and her advice is transcribed into this book. Mary Mras was a remarkable wife, mother, sister and daughter, educator, and a teacher of all. Anyone fortunate enough to cross her path surely felt her magnetic presence. Mary lived her life with intention and by example, showed us how to live a fulfilled life not by being famous or boisterous, but by simply sharing a smile, laughing through tough times and loving her family. It’s my hope to share small glimpses of a phenomenal woman, as she influenced my life, as a teacher, mentor, friend and mother-in-law. Throughout this story are Mary’s words of wisdom which are in bold italics. This book also contains e-mails from Mary’s husband, Tony, that give us an up-close view of her battle with Leukemia. The Epilogue is the story of how a sudden event forced me to re-evaluate my life to be more like Mary. The end is a list of ‘Mary-isms’ on life.
Eat, Drink, and Be Mary is available traditional and audiobook formats so you can devour the lessons and be inspired everywhere you go.
