Dealing With Grief – Two Profoundly Moving Reads You Shouldn’t Miss
None of us knows what tomorrow has in store for us. And when tragedy or heart-rending events happen, we all go on our own personal journey of dealing with grief.
“Life is the pitcher. And you are at bat.” (Linda)
My mother and best friend died in 2016. The path from then to now included my own road trips, a generous helping of soul-searching, and re-constructing a world that I naively thought would never change. There have been many moments of introspection, memories, learning, smiles, and, of course, tears.
“The perfect book is like hugs put in print.” (Linda)
Reading has always been a source of inspiration and knowledge for me. And, having struggled with anxiety for most of my life, it’s often been a source of comfort.
Whether you’ve experienced a loss or just enjoy an inspiring story of dealing with the curve balls that life throws at you, here’s two newly-published reads you won’t want to miss. If you’ve got a friend or relative who is currently grieving over a loss, they’d make perfect holiday gifts.
The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles – A Love Story
What do you do when your comfortable life is turned upside down by the sudden loss of your partner and best friend? Laura Fahrenthold chose to take her two daughters on a 30,000+ mile trip across North America in an RV. Like so many things in life, Laura shows us that grieving doesn’t have to look a certain way.
The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles relates Laura’s story of healing, searching for understanding, and letting go of what once was to begin anew. You’ll be captivated, and share both tears and smiles as you embark on the journey with her. Grab a box of Kleenex, get the book, and get ready for some deeply heart-hugging moments.
The best parts of life are the strong personal relationships we have with others. There’s really no explaining what this thing called “love” really is, but when the love connection is broken by death, we instantly know life will never be the same again.
The elements of grieving play out differently for all of us. In “Tilda’s Promise,” Author Jean P. Moore weaves an elegant story of love and loss, as Tilda deals with the sudden loss of her husband of 40 years. It’s a poignant reminder that even the dark moments of life become light again with hope and renewal.
Sometimes, we have to lose ourselves and calm our broken hearts by placing our attention on something else. These two books are a great way to do that. Hugs come from surprising and amazing places!
