“I wonder if my first breath was as soul-stirring to my mother as her last breath was to me?”
This quote from the author’s memoir, 14 Days: A Mother, A Daughter, A Two-Week Goodbye, inspired this portable, easy-to-navigate, beautifully-designed guided journal for those going through grief, loss, and bereavement.
After loss, a lot of “I wonders…” come to mind:
“I wonder how I’m supposed to get through today?”
“I wonder how long I’m going to feel this way?”
“I wonder if it’s okay for me to smile today?”
Questions like these form the roadmap for this book.
Because no two people grieve alike, and because the path to healing widely differs from person to person, the exercises in this guided journal are designed to let the bereaved walk themselves through the healing process—using their own words and wisdom, with help from questions and thoughtful prompts. This is not a how-to book on grief, but instead, a place for the reader to express their private thoughts, memories, and feelings as they heal their hearts through inner reflection.
In the end, this guided journal will become a beautiful tribute to the person lost, whose memory will live on through its pages.
