GUEST POST:
- What inspired you to write this book?

Hello, I’m James Ruvalcaba the Author of The Light Through the Pouring Rain and I’m here today to write about what inspired me to write my book. To give a bit of background to my book I detail the trials and tribulations of enduring a cancer diagnosis. I go into detail about how my Fiancee Anabel and I dealt with it and keep our eyes to the sky and used our faith in God to make it to the end. Unfortunately, my fiancee, Anabel didn’t make it and she passed away, so now I tell our story on my own with hopes to carry on her legacy and be a testimony of God’s goodness. So today I bring to you my inspiration on why I decided to write my book.

In my final moments with my Fiancee, I promised her that I would “ continue to honor her legacy by telling our story together and would always speak her name at any given opportunity.” My inspiration to tell our story has so many layers to it, but my main reason is simply a promise.

I will never forget the last words I whispered to her and she was in a constant state of being conscious and unconscious. I will forever cherish our last moments together, but the promise I made to her that day drives me to this day.

Promise by definition is a declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing or that a particular thing will happen. I made a declaration to my fiancee two years ago and two years later I came through on that promise. So many times I’ve experienced letdowns and broken promises as I believe we all experience at one point or another, but I would be ashamed if I would break this promise. It drives me every single day to push forward with hopes to touch and inspire others in the world with not only getting through a cancer diagnosis but with perspectives and the constant sense of humor we used to get by day to day. I promise to anybody who is reading this blog you will get through it please don’t get caught up in the would’ve, could’ve, should’ve of the past. Please don’t get sidetracked by the anxieties of tomorrow. Just stay in the moment and take it one day at a time.

  4. This is a heartfelt story without the expected happy ending, yet there is growth in a period of enlightenment.
