stories_julie_cox“I’m a WINNER because I’ve known DEFEAT,

HAPPY because I’ve known SORROW,

GENEROUS because I’ve known HUNGER

and KINDNESS as I’ve experienced CRUELTY.

Life is worth living and beautiful as I’ve known HOPELESSNESS and DARKNESS” – Julie Cox

Here are a few excerpts from her book:

“If a burglar had broken into our house, we would have robbed the burglar. That’s how poor we were!” – page 2

“I’d always dreamed of going to school and learning beyond my years. I was always in the top of my class from first to the fourth grade. I went to school with no books and sometimes no pencil or paper-and most of the time with no slippers or shoes. I was the “little girl with no shoes”. I will never forget when I heard there was a famous baseball player over a century ago called “Shoeless Joe Jackson.” I was “Shoeless Julie” – page 4

“I believe that I am not in this earth to be just a living breathing thing. I believe God designed a beautiful interesting life for me” – page 26

“My loneliness was killing me. I learned how to sew, I did embroidery, and i wrote letters and poems. I read many books and journals. I educated myself in many aspects of science, medicine and psychology.” – page 28-29

“When my family left me, I took a massive dose of sleeping pills. I woke up being worked on by the doctors trying everything humanly possible to make me survive.” – page 29

“Would you believe that I have recovered the land my father lost through his gambling?” (this is now the Fil-Am Garden Resort which Julie established for years) – page 38

“One day not long ago, it was so beautiful outside-sunny and bright. I  was looking outside the window while ironing what I would wear that day, a beautiful flowered dress. I thought of these words: “Bloom where you are planted.”– page 116

“I Ordered My Future Yesterday” is available in Amazon, Barnes and Noble and National Bookstore branches in Philippines.
