Grand Prize Giveaway at the End of Post!
I remember as though it were yesterday. Something was wrong with my husband Larry. Really wrong. But my son was graduating from high school and we wanted one last family vacation together. We went to England and Scotland. While we were there we got word that our house had burned to the ground. We returned home to ashes and the news that Larry’s condition would continue to rob him of his mental and physical faculties, and eventually of his life.
Oh, how well I remember. All alone… Lost in grief and despair… Desperate to make sense of it all and still cling to my faith in God… Needing my children but desperate not to drag them into my increasing hopelessness.
I remember so well, searching for a book like this one written by Cecil Murphy and Liz Allison. Searching for someone who could understand my loss and grief.
The authors know what they are talking about:
From guiding the reader away from the “if onlies” and toward the little joys to reaffirming roller-coaster feelings, to pointing the way to help, this little book packs a wallop of comfort. Thank you, Cec and Liz. How I wish this book had been available for my weary soul!
