As most of you know I’m currently trying to finish a book on grief. So I took my research with me on vacation in order to get some more work done on the book. Well – while reviewing my book, I began to feel some of the dreadful pain that permeated my soul for so long. I had read from previous authors that writing about such a painful topic would cause one to revisit their grief, but I had no idea how profoundly hard writing this book would be.
As I begin the final phase of the book, I am reminded that there is a great deal of work to be done in this area. What do I mean by that? I’m just saying that there are many topics to discuss and they are painful and take you places you may not want to return. It takes guts and shear determination to write a book so soon after the event. But I will forge on, because it is my purpose, at least for now.
If my book helps one person realize that the feelings they are feeling and will feel are valid and that there are others who have gone before us and many more, sadly enough, who will come after us. And it is our job to help them through the journey.
Until next time,
