Read full description of the books:
For many years I’ve always had a serving of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Stories About Life, Death and Overcoming the Loss of a Loved One, on my pile of books; spooning up one or two a day. They’re just the right size to be savored each morning. The stories often inspire me, remind me to be thankful for my blessings, appreciate my life, spark memories, and are a good jump start to a positive attitude for the day.
This recent assortment was no exception, but did take me a bit longer to read than some of the others. Sometimes days would go by before I’d read the next offering. Perhaps it was the nature of the stories gathered here that caused me to take my time to absorb.
I have my favorites in the Chicken Soup series. Chicken Soup for the Grieving Soul is definitely in the top five. Starting with this quote:
“the best and most beautiful things in the
world cannot be seen, nor touched, but are felt in the heart.”
to its very end, it was a touching, sometimes heart-wrenching, surprisingly heart-warming journey.
Instead of sharing the stories that will remain with me; I’d suggest you sample these on your own, taking what you need. Grieving is so personal. What comforted me might not be the same for you. If you are grieving or in need a way to help you through the process, Chicken Soup for the Grieving Soul might be helpful. It provided an outlet for me to open up my heart to recent losses. It was a blend of sadness, comfort, humor and healing; a testament that life can and does continue, differently but living just he same!
