On Death and Grief


Pennies From Heavan

Pennies From Heaven

Death comes to all of us sooner or later. It is as much a part of life as living. Because death is an unknown we do not know how to handle it when we lose someone we love. We have a hole that will not close. We feel a loss that will not leave. We feel anger, hurt, sadness, denial and many other emotions. We are not taught about death and grief because as human beings we live in denial. If we don’t think about it – then it will not happen. Or it happens to others not us.

I have been dealing with death since I was a child. People I loved have been dying ever since I can remember. Thankfully I had parents that taught me not only about death but about grief. They were wise enough to teach me that every one grieves differently- everyone has to find their own level of acceptance. (Some never do) –

Pennies from Heaven is about death and grief. It is not the usual how to book- Those are a waste of time. Pennies from Heaven is stories gathered far and wide written by others who have been there. Some who fell into the abyss and had to find their way out. It is not a book about making people “get over it”. One never gets over a death- one only learns how to move forward with the hole in their heart.

The beauty of this book is this- not only is it filled with stories of death and grief it is filled with stories of those who have gone on – being near those left behind. There are stories of beloved pets who have crossed over to Rainbow Bridge- Yes, I included those because they are a part of our lives- we love them and when we lose them it is painful- It does leave a hole in our hearts.

I highly recommend this book- It is not morbid nor is it hand slapping funny. It is a mixture of emotions much like we feel when we grieve. If this little book helps just one person learn to move forward while holding on to those memories which are so dear it will have been worth it. I know it has already helped the story tellers to heal.

Pennies From Heaven will be released in the next two months. I will post as soon as it hits the market.
