Sharing Our Journey of Loss When a Parent Passes
Walking through the many medical glitsches when our parents are terminally ill
I shared my Saturday morning with a group of readers, writers, and booklovers. I was invited to speak at Jefferson Street Books in my community of Sturgeon Bay WI. I presented my book, Sally: A Memoir which details my walk with my own mother through her hospice care. The morning was lively and intimate, since the subject matter creates deep feelings and memories for all present.
I so enjoyed the time, and always feel inspired to share more after these meetings. We all love and have known loss…but how often do we revisit the deep feelings that we experienced during these times? And how often do we reflect on the changes in our lives since we walked through this in our lives?
I left Jefferson Street Books feeling peaceful and expanded, having touched and been touched by others. That is my purpose for writing this book, and sharing the very intimate details of my own life and family.
