July 18th

I have recently read a book that I thought that I would pass on. I feel as though it has helped me with my grief tremendously. (It is not a grief book however) The book is called "The Shack", written by William Paul Young. It is a religious book, however, it does not reflect on one certain religion, just the "basics" of a Christian person. I would love to discuss it with anyone who has read or reads it. My sister and I have been discussing it for a week now and keep discussing. If anyone would like to borrow my copy, I can mail it to you.

I read a really good post on about grief (7/17). Rose wrote this post about a newsletters article she had read and I like the way that she explains it. There are also some other good post on there also.

This week has been pretty rough for me. I am missing both of my little Angels. But I know that someday, we will get to meet and hold them in our arms.

I hope everyone is doing as well as can be.

So, very sorry about the loss of your sweet babies. Praying for your healing and praying for you as you consider TTC.

I have read it and I love it too. The first time was over a year ago and then I re read it about 2 months ago. I would definitely recommend reading it more than once. There is so much in it.
The main character is angry at God, and so am I, so I relate to him well. I relate to his grief too.
It is such a non judgmental book. It challenges lots of ideas that the religious have about their faith. Such as music and rituals.

I read this book as well after loosing Charlie.

I was amazed at the clarity it gave me and how much it helped me heal.

Thanks for these suggestions on some good reads. Not a Christian but open to reading anything. Sounds intriguing!

Beautiful blog, by the way. Heartwrenching story.
