Author’s Note

 

It is inevitable we will all suffer loss in our lives. Whether it is the loss of a relationship, a job, a pet, or a loved one, most find it upsetting and painful. We all deal with the hurting or grief—differently. I am not ashamed to share my journey and fight for survival after the tragic death of my daughter. I do wish to offer hope and encouragement so that others will see that they, too, can survive life’s most difficult challenges.

Enduring this terrible loss has led me to look at my life more closely and has helped me to understand its true meaning and purpose. We have to believe and we must have faith, knowing with confidence that our lives are eternal, and our loved ones truly never leave us. We are stronger than we realize or ever deemed possible. I have found that it is in the midst of the hardest times that I turn to God to find peace. It is unlikely that if everything were perfect, we would feel the need to seek God in our lives. It is through these difficult times that we grow spiritually, furthering us on the path of our life journey.

Please don’t let sadness keep you from reading my journey. I assure you that I find peace and have emerged a better person.
