The way to love anything is to realize it might be lost. -G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936), English writer known in his day as "The Prince of Paradox." Writers have a unique way of rising like a phoenix from the ashes, turning the devastating loss of a loved one into intimate accounts of overcoming grief. The stories that result comfort and inspire their readers.
This week we'd like you to blog about the one loss-an object, a person, a dream-that was hardest to bear. How did you cope with the loss, and what strength did you gain from the experience?
Blog and you may receive a free copy of books by Red Room authors. Abigail Carter's The Alchemy of Loss: A Young Widow's Transformation is an inspirational and comforting memoir by who lost her husband in a moment - the 9/11 attacks - watched by the world. Susan “SARK” Kennedy’s newest inspirer, Glad No
Matter What: Transforming Loss and Change Into Gift and Opportunity. Much more than a simplistic search for the silver lining in storm clouds, SARK’s approach is a map, guidebook, and step-by-step strategy for profound, positive transformation through, rather than despite, life’s inevitable travails.
