When You Lose Someone You Love
A beautifully-designed in the shape and form of a greeting card, this 116-page book is bursting with watercolor illustrations and affirmations to heal and sooth a soul.
Filled with expressive sentiments and beautifully simple illustrations from the personal grief journal of award winning artist/author Joanne Fink, this special edition of When You Lose Someone You Love offers a healing connection with all who are dealing with one of life’s most challenging times.
Grief does not follow a linear timeframe… nor will it consent to be neatly folded up in a suitcase and gotten out when you feel like it. Especially early on in what I call ‘the grief journey,’ grief has a mind of its own, and can sneak up on you with incredible ferocity when you are least expecting it. My journey from grief to gratitude is ongoing.
Readers will understand that they are not alone, that there will be days when you feel overwhelmed, nights when you can’t sleep, and times when waves of sadness wash over you unexpectedly.
Affirming and cathartic, this book will help bring healing without sugarcoating the challenges of losing a loved one. When You Lose Someone You Love is an incredible gift of comfort for anyone who endures the journey of losing a spouse, a family member or close friend.
Grieving is like embarking upon a journey to an unknown destination, against your will, without any idea of how long it will take or what you will find once you get there.
In the beginning it is a full time job, and can take every ounce of determination you can muster just to get through the day.
At first you may just keep putting one foot in front of the other because you don’t know what else to do.
After a while, as you start to regain your equilibrium and work through your grief, you may discover an inner strength and resiliency that surprises you.
When You Lose Someone You Love features:
• Life-affirming insights from the personal grief journal of an award-winning artist.
• Expressive sentiments take readers through the many emotions of loss.
• Beautifully illustrations on every page.
• A 116 page book that offers the “look and feel” of a very personal greeting card.
When your world is shattered by loss, you wonder how you can pick up the broken pieces and glue them back together… part of the journey from grief to gratitude is the gradual, heartbreaking realization that you can’t.
But as you continue your journey, you can learn to build a new life founded on the love and cherished memories you hold in your heart.
