Heartfelt Hope and Loving InspirationI wish there were books like this where grief education is enveloped in hope about the possibility to fully live when we are ready especially after feeling despair wants to keep us lost in darkness Although every grief journey is different I believe the genuine sharing of grief experience and how we can go on as David lovingly expresses can inspire so many to find their own way after loss We can feel less alone and an easing of the terror that every second our heartache will always feel the worst I so much agree with what he says about not having to be destined for eternal pain or controlled by our despair Our spirit doesn’t have to die when a loved one does David reminded me of the power I have to tend to my thoughts and well being so I can feel connection with the love I share whether it’s with someone I cherish in physical form or not The meaning I made from the death of my loved ones is that being with them again someday in spirit is my eternal life and how I embrace the experience of love and adventure in this limited human life is in my power to be wonderful A greatest lesson I have learned about love is how it feels when someone is there for you at the worst of times I am grateful to have had this book to read on this Thanksgiving It made me feel alive
