Life as an Awesome Doormat
by Dorothy A. MacIntosh

Sometimes even when you try to do what’s right, things don’t always work out and you’re left feeling like a doormat. In Life as an Awesome Doormat, author Dorothy MacIntosh shares a delightful array of anecdotes about just that. From growing up with her four siblings on a farm near Pictou, Nova Scotia, to her days as a math teacher at West Pictou District High School and raising a family of her own, Dorothy often ends up with the short end of the stick. But that doesn’t stop her from trusting in herself or regretting her choices. She firmly believes if you have never made a mistake, then you have never done anything! Now seeing the bright side of things, Dorothy has plenty of funny stories to tell and thoughtful lessons to share. After all, if you can’t laugh at yourself, you might be missing the lessons you could be learning.

Life as an awesome doormat—it can happen to anyone. Be on the lookout!
