Pennies From Heaven – They do Speak to Us

 

 

 

 

Pennies From Heaven

Pennies From Heaven

My newest release Pennies from Heaven has been released through Lulu Publishing. It is now up on Amazon Kindle and Nook and will soon be available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

This book involves several people who have graciously agreed to reach down inside their souls where no one else goes to write their stories of loss and grief. The stories are as varied as the people who wrote them. Some of them are faith based – some are non faith based- many ask the question of why- a couple are about precious pets which have gone on to Rainbow Bridge.

Each of us grieve in different ways- sadly some of us never grieve- we cheat ourselves by not grieving and we also cheat those who have died. We do not allow them to become a memory nor do we allow them to help us heal. We spend time in denial with no way out. This shortens our life- our mental outlook and destroys our physical being.

When we don’t grieve and then accept their death- we cheat those we have lost. We cheat them of the life they lived and we cheat them of their love for us.

It was my goal when I put this book together to help at least one person who may be grieving- to show that no two people grieve the same on in the same way and that there is no right or wrong way to grieve. The important thing is to grieve and then heal- then live.

Imperfect Children in a “Perfect” World

Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option

I have watched and listened with a couple of emotions and thoughts as the pundits and those who have no clue discuss the birth control/abortion argument yet again. The fact of whether or not “imperfect” children belong in a “perfect” world. It has begun to transcend the fact that unemployment is at an all time high, the fact that we don’t need to be in Afghanistan anymore and other important issues in our country. Be that as it may let me just tell you a story.

In my family there is an “imperfect” child. In fact there were five of us. However, the one who stands out is Stan who was born in 1952. He was born at a time when that “imperfect” child was shunned by society, much like most of them are still shunned today. Stan contracted the flu when he was six months old and to add insult to injury he got an inflammation on the lining of his brain, which left him brain damaged. The part of his brain which controls his speech and motor skills were damaged and the doctors said he would never amount to anything but a vegetable.

The doctors recommendation was an institution or asylum. You see he was to “imperfect” to be useful to society. He has no place in the “Perfect” world. He had nothing to offer, to contribute to leave as a legacy.

Fortunately my mother didn’t listen to the naysayers. She understood that he did have a place, that there is always a reason for everything in life. He has taught all of us more than we can ever teach him. He taught us unconditional love, forgiveness, tenacity, belief that dreams do come true, loyalty, faith and so many other life’s lessons that we might not have learned had it not been for the blessing in our lives.

Is there a master plan? Indeed. Do we always know what that master plan is? No we do not! Do we really live in a “Perfect” world. No we do not. None of us are perfect. We all have “imperfections”. We all have something that is wrong with us. I live in a right handed world- I am left handed. I am less than five feet tall. And no I am past the age of 30 which most people believe is the magic age of wisdom. It isn’t.

Those children whose lives are snuffed out before they even breathe a breath outside the womb are a part of our future that will never be known. Stan has helped form my future. Had it not been for me I would probably never written the first book after my creative ability was squelched as a child. I would have probably gone through my life frustrated because I felt I wasn’t good enough. I would have never known the love, the kindness and the humbleness I have learned by having him as my “imperfect” brother in this “perfect” world.

Read his story then you too will understand the depth of my feeling about the joy, need and ability these “imperfect” children offer our “perfect” world
