Visit her at PattiDigh.com.She says "I’m a writer, a speaker, and a mom. My work opens space for people to say a big YES to their lives--before it’s too late. I’m about living like you’re dying, because you are. Each moment is precious, and magic. It’s hard to remember that when the laundry piles up and the dishes need washing, I know. My job is to remind you, through my writing, teaching, and speaking, that those "ordinary" things are your life--and to see what is extraordinary in them. To help you tell a story with your life that you’ll love and be proud of at the end of it."
