In 1976, the life of a busy mother of three changed forever. After Peg Beaton’s twenty-month-old son was diagnosed with leukemia and given two months to live, she and her husband embarked down an unpredictable path lined with emotions they did not understand or know how to deal with. Forty-four years later, she now has a better understanding of grief and how it affects each of us in different ways.
In a touching resharing of her family’s story, Peg details their personal journey with the hope of helping those suffering through losses both big and small to first understand and process the powerful emotion of grief, and then move into an acceptance stage to embrace a new direction filled with peace and joy. Included are chapter summaries and an appendix that provide valuable insight into the process of grief and empower those suffering to move from an existence fueled by fear and negativity into a state of positivity that welcomes peace, joy, and fulfillment.
Healing shares the personal story of a family’s journey through loss and grief to help others understand the grieving process and ultimately heal.
