Living According to God’s Plan is about the relationship between a mother and daughter. Although Linda never questioned her dad’s love, she was never sure if her mother loved her. “How would you like it if all your life your mother told you there was something wrong with you and she always acted like you were stupid?” Linda cried. “I don’t know Linda. My mother died when I was three. I never had a mother,” replied Loraine, Linda’s mother. When Linda’s dad gets Alzheimer’s, it puts even more strain on the mother/daughter relationship. To say that the Drummonds were a good Catholic family would be a stretch of the imagination. It’s not easy to live according to God’s plan, especially when it differs from our own plan.
