Remembering The Loved One You Lost

As You Walk the Lotus Gardens

by Victoria D Schmidt

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
This is a little book with a big, caring heart. Most everyone has lost someone they have held very dear. The passages with images of the noble lotus in this inspirational volume will help those who have lost loving partners find solace, comfort and peace. Many of the lines of poetry also reach out to console those who are grieving for dear friends or other family members who have left them in sorrow. Dying is not an end, it is a part of life, a beginning of contemplative thought and a reminder of the wonders of living.
This little book is all about love, loss and hope. You have lost someone dear to you. Though you have family and friends to comfort you, you are overwhelmed with grief, sadness and emptiness. You feel so very much alone. I know, for I lost my beloved more than a decade ago and there are times I still shed tears for him. The exquisite lotus and discerning passages of poetry in this volume are designed to help you through your grief and bring back treasured memories of the loved one who has left you. I was inspired by the elegance of the lotus to reveal and blend its beauty, spirituality and promise with stirring messages of solace and hope. The lotus symbolizes the beauty and spiritual awakening of the ancient religions and cultures of Buddhism, Hinduism and Egyptology. The flower is known for its purity since it emerges from murky waters pure and clean in the morning as a symbol of the sun, rebirth and creation. The colors of the lotus represent the best qualities of life. The blue lotus signifies victory of spirit over wisdom, intelligence and knowledge; the white lotus, mental purity and spiritual perfection; purple/lavender, nobility and self-awakening; pink, truth; and red is the heart, love and compassion. You may read this little book again and again, any time, anywhere. Consider sitting on a garden bench near a lotus pond and let the magic of this sacred flower bring you happy memories, peace and hope.
About the author
After many years in a happy, loving marriage author, Victoria D. Schmidt, lost her husband, Ralph, to Parkinson’s disease. She discovered several havens including scores of publications that helped her with her grief and gave her a sense of peace. However, Victoria felt there was a need for a book, a single volume that would offer women a wide range of resources … people, places, websites, organizations and more … to find solace and gratifying, new life options. She undertook the task herself. The result is Finding Solitary Contentment. As she worked on the manuscript for this book, she was inspired to create a companion piece, a gift book illustrated with photos of lotus. Remembering the Loved One You Lost is a little book with a big heart for anyone who has lost someone dear. Ms Schmidt lives in Oldwick, New Jersey with Dominique, her gentle whippet.
