That Painful Revelation
Just when we were about to realize all our dreams and enjoy the fruits of our long labor, tragedy struck ending his life and our marriage. Ten days after undergoing knee-replacement surgery my husband died from a blood clot in his lung. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997. At the time of my diagnosis I couldn’t fathom anything more frightening or painful than hearing the doctor say those words. After surviving the cancer, I believed I’d already experience the worst life had to offer. Sixteen years later life proved me wrong. Nothing could compare to the pain, devastation, shock and fear I felt when the doctor informed me that the man I’d loved for half my life was gone—gone forever! That painful revelation catapulted me into a place of darkness I was convinced I would never emerge from. In a matter of minutes my whole life changed and I was forced to acknowledge the reality that nothing would ever be the same again.
I loved this book! So inspiring and heartwarming. The book is about human resiliency and knowing when it’s time to move on. There’s a time to mourn, a time to cry but there always comes a time to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, reflect on how you have grown, count your blessings, and turn your face toward the sunshine again.
