A heavenly hug
20 December 2015
This book was very comforting and strangely timely, as I bought it some time before starting to read it. I decided to buy the kindle version, when I was feeling pretty low, but Kindle isn't my preferred way of reading, it was just the quickest way to get the book that I was most drawn to.
I was well into it at a time when I was feeling amiss as a result of another anniversary since my brothers passing. He has let me know he is ok and I was able to recognise the signs of his presence that was written about, but I still felt lost. I will continue to miss communicating with him in the usual way, but I laugh, even at that, as he was quite a character and a handful at times. However, it's an experience Im so glad I have had.
I do feel stronger for reading this book and realise that, in many ways, I am stronger as a result of his passing. We were and are close, so I do feel he has tried very hard to give me support, as in life, it was usually the other way around. Sounds a bit strange to some, I guess, but as there are no goodbyes, I'm learning to get on with my life and not to expel all of my energy in fixing others for them, even though they may think they want me to. I'm learning to be helpful in a different way, and somehow, this book tells me I'm really doing ok too. I find myself saying more and more, to myself and others, everything will work out ok in the end.
I hope others have the same comfort and acknowledgement from reading it.
