GRIEF ~ INSPIRATION ~ MOTIVATION
As a first-time writer, my book Alone in the Darkness, In Search of Hope is a captivating personal account of the journey my husband and I shared throughout our lives together. My memoir reminisces a brief journey of the young love we shared, examines the pain that partners share through the battles of terminal illness, and investigates a possible connection love creates between the living and a spiritual realm I believe exists.
Being a survivor of the 60’s generation, though admittedly not an active participant of the whirlwind cultural revolution that took place during this time, my story delves into the simplicity of social relationships of my youth. During that time, according to my belief, love and marriage represented the key goal to achieving lifelong happiness.
Although I felt as though my life ended when my husband died in the autumn of 2015, through inspiration and determination I found the answer to the age-old question: Why was I the one who was left behind?
Unexpected spiritual intervention caused me to embark upon a new path at this extremely difficult time in my life. I soon discovered that my secret for survival would become dependent upon my ability to look beyond the pain my grief created. I needed to take fresh new steps to heal my broken heart and start over.
Along the way, I experienced supernatural events that convinced me my husband’s spirit, his essence, lived on.
The course of action I took to help me accomplish my goal was to undertake the difficult task of becoming a writer.
If you are among those who suffer from grief, I am here to say, I understand; for this is not a journey we take by choice.
My website is intended to be a sounding board for those who are experiencing grief of any kind; or, just to let you know you are not alone as you persevere through the trials we are meant to encounter in our lives.
