Losing her husband and only son in less than a two-year span brought a "new normal" and many tough decisions. Newly widowed and childless, Sally could either "sit it out" or "dance" into the future-a metaphor for the choices we make as we cope with grief.
Her poignant, funny, and gung-ho journey is both a tribute to her departed family members and a resource for those facing the most challenging life and death scenarios. It hasn't been easy. She shares insights into a perfectly imperfect marriage haunted by a mistress named "alcohol," and her husband's life-changing recovery. Written from a mother's perspective, Sally celebrates her "carbon copy"-a son who lit up her world and produced her wonderful grandchildren.
Suddenly both her husband and son were gone. Now what?
Sharing a dose of chutzpah and a sprinkling of faith, Sally's positive mindset, friendships and "bucket list" encourages others to embrace life. "I wrote the book to help people who are struggling with grief," says the author. "Life isn't perfect, but the journey can be joyous-I promise!" The book a must-read and a testament that you, too, can find joy after deep loss. What a wonderful resource for anyone facing the unthinkable. Share the book with friends and family who need it most!
