Companion in Grief is a guide for those experiencing the painful grief that follows the loss of a loved one. There is a message for each day of the year offering support in three areas: practical tips for managing profound feelings, spiritual thoughts that arise in grief, and inspiration for reaching the inevitable light at the end of the tunnel. Get the help you need from someone who's been through the painful experience of grief.
Companion in Grief offers help from a respectful place of experience without the presumption of religion. For grievers with short attention spans, the straightforward paragraphs on non-clinical concepts are a welcome respite. "Companion" directs a griever's attention away from pain by focusing on the larger picture of transitions that are constant in our lives; it brings comfort by guiding the reader to an awareness of the ongoing connection to those they've loved and lost; and it provides steps through simple, practical activities that foster the strength we all have to construct our own healing. Companion in Grief was written by an author whose husband died suddenly. Sharing her most personal thoughts and experiences through this difficult time is an offering of hope to others who are similarly struggling. This book provides help to many kinds of grievers, but those who've lost a spouse or other partner may particularly find relief in these pages. Here is a private way to experience the kind of personal support found in grief groups. The index is compiled by topic and emotion so that a reader can get right to the help they need. It's like having a friend with just the right words always within reach. Get the supportive help you need right here from someone who's been through the painful experience of grief.
