Simple Abundance

January 10, 2008

Today's quote:

It's only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth - and that we no way of knowing when our time is up - that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.

Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

That was my quote in my Simple Abundance book for today.  Elizabeth Kubler-Ross writes a lot of books about grief and I've read many of them. I remember reading Life Lessons and other books on grieving.  It seems I couldn't get enough of them after losing Ryan and through the years and other losses.  For some reason I thought a book would make it all make sense, like I would read a paragraph and say "Oh, now I get it".  Well that never happened, but it did help me understand the stages and what I was going through... and that I wasn't going crazy. 

So when I seen the quote for today in my Simple Abundance book it reminded me of how far I've come

Some of the books I've read about grief and loss are

  1. How to survive the loss of a child
  2. Remembering with love
  3. Roses in December
  4. Talking to heaven
  5. Good Grief -  more a story of a woman who lost her spouse

After losing my brother Joe I read the book "The 5 people you meet in heaven" and that helped me so much that it became a gift I give  to friends when they are grieving.
