Summary

Summary

"What we call the beginning is often the end/And to make an end is to make a beginning." --T.S. Eliot "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable." --Helen Keller With one-hundred life-affirming, love-affirming meditations, this book addresses the issues and emotions that accompany the loss of a love. Readers will learn that there are no wrong feelings or responses to their grief, but there are ways to overcome the obstacles in their paths--and grow from them. Inspiring and uplifting, the meditations serve as comforting guideposts throughout the journey from pain to a new beginning.
