JoDee Messina co-authors a new book, "Chicken Soup For The Soul: Thanks To My Mom." Messina wrote the introduction and first chapter, a tribute to her own mom, re-telling her mother’s lifelong message to her that there would always be a string attaching their hearts no matter how near or far, through good or bad, in life and, when the time comes, even in death.
The mother of two small boys, it is a lesson Messina will pass along to them. Author of the book, Amy Newmark, and Messina personally each selected the other 100 stories by men and women from across the country honoring their moms through wonderful memories of experiences and the lessons that have helped to guide their lives.
“This book is a gigantic 'thank you' to my mom and yours – with stories that will make them smile, laugh out loud, and even tear up a few times,” shared Messina.
