My desire is to also help to heal the hurting hearts of those who have shared their stories with you in this audiobook. And I hope through the stories found in the audio, you find strength and courage and hope.
In this audiobook, you will also find tidbits on how to deal with other things that can cause us to grieve. Things that you'll probably be surprised to learn we have the right to grieve over. What do we grieve for? You'd be surprised at what warrants our grief. We all grieve over the death of someone we love, and we know we grieve over the loss of our pets.
But did you know that we also have the right to grieve over the loss of a relationship, a job, a home... all of these things are worthy of a mourning period. The loss of anything that we hold dear and has held a prominent place in our lives and/or hearts causes us sorrow and pain, and is worth taking the time to mourn and heal.
In this audiobook, others share their stories and it's comforting to see where they are in their journey. Losing someone is heartbreaking, but losing someone as prominent in our lives as our fathers changes us forever. Some of these ladies are in the beginning and you can feel their pain and anger, and sense of disconnection with the rest of the world, yet you will also hear stories of those who have had time to process and heal and grow.
It's my hope that their stories will also give you hope to see that while, yes, this does change who you are at your core forever... it changes you for the better. That same pain that is causing you to hurt so much now is the same pain that is going to allow you - in fact - help you get stronger and move you into the next phase of your life. If you allow yourself the time - the respect - to grieve.
