This is a charming autobiography written in 1944 by Borghild Dahl, an author who was born in 1890. Borghild had no sight in one eye and was legally blind in the other, yet became a teacher at the college level and an author. She tells about her childhood, the lessons she learned from her parents (who expected her to do the chores like the rest of the children), and the kindness of others. Though she is faced with disappointment and huge challenges, she is strong in the faith that God has some wo [...]
A number of years ago this author was quoted by Thomas S. Monson in a closing address given at a conference. The book he referenced was titled "Happy All My Life". My search for that book has been fruitless, so I settled for this one -- an autobiography of a woman who lived a full life against great odds.

She lived a great and [...]
I love this book. What a beautiful person, and so determined, hardworking and full of hope. Her life, surrounded by people that cared for her, who went above and beyond, to help her. Its a true story and Borghild Dahl was amazing. At the, she is so joyous about seeing rainbows in the soap suds as she does the dishes. I love this book, for it allowed me a glimpse into this extraordinary life.

Autobiography that my mother recommended to me when I was in high school. Similar story to that of Helen Keller's.
