When we fear death, we miss out on a lot of life. This book hopes to change that.
While hospices care for persons in their final days, hospice is not about death. It's all about LIFE - real, nitty-gritty, poignant, funny, challenging, and bittersweet life in all its beauty and imperfection.
Those who have experienced hospice usually speak in reverential tones of this service and find themselves fearing death less because they have seen all the incredible life that happens until the final moment. But those unfamiliar with hospice often misunderstand and fear it, and the end of life.
Through first-hand accounts that range from humorous to heart-wrenchingly honest, Carla shares the stories that continue to teach her the lessons of what it means to be truly present with ourselves and each other in this perfectly imperfect experience called life.
