WaltC Posted January 2, 2006 Report Share Posted January 2, 2006 As I think back to last year when a large part of me died with the loss of my Jeannie to cancer I wonder how I have survived this long.Without a doubt the support that I have found here and other similar groups has played a BIG role in that survival.I know that we are all at different stages in our grief journey, and that we all move along at a different pace. Perhaps we could share the one or two things that helped us the most in 2005.For me, the best investment that I made last year was to purchase a small paperback book Healing After Loss by Martha Hickman. It contains short, one page daily "Meditations" to help a grieving person get through one more day. You do not have to be "religious" to benefit from the book. For example, today's message is:"If I can let my resistance down. be calm in my soul, my grief will tell me what it needs from me each step of the way"You can read what others thought of this book here:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/customer-...=283155&s=booksPlease share with us what helped you the most last year and how long it has been since you lost your loved one.
