Deserves more than 5 stars. A story that will live long in my mind and heart. A true treasure.
Sara has had to deal with loss. Sara learned how to live after losing both her parents. For Sara trying to live after losing her husband is a daily struggle. This is Sara's journey at how to cope with the loss of a partner.
It's a sad and heartbreaking journey. A journey I personally have not yet encountered myself. I'm sure at some point in my life I will be thankful for any advice deemed from this journey. I may even need to refer back to this story to help get me through my own loss.
Loss effects people differently. The loss of ones parents as a young child compared to an adult. The loss of a sibling. The loss of a child. The loss of a spouse.
What does one turn to in time of depression? God, friends, family, counseling, drugs, alcohol, or death.
Lindy you wrote this story either having experiencing this same situation or you have done a fine job at researching this situation. Better yet you pay attention to others and you are a great observer of what others experience in life.
Best words I ever heard,"I have to find something to make me want to live". This one is good as well,"Those that don't ask for help need it the most". Help from a stranger. Help from one-sided conversations. Help from a friend who wants to see you live.
Lindy your a genius with your words. Your words tugged on my heartstrings. Thank you for recommending this story. It's compelling and beautiful.
Occasional Lindy will share a past moment of when Sara and her husband were together. Something will trigger the memory. Those were sweet and tender moments.
This is Sara's journey at dealing with loss and finding something to live for. Along this journey Sara slowly healed. Sara conquered a lot on her journey. She not only survived her own grief but helped Lincoln in his as well.
There's a hint at something more brewing inside Lincoln. This small notion keeps the story interesting. The story is always flowing in unexpected directions. It's almost therapeutic. It's like living through the stages of grief. I appreciated each level that Sara achieved at moving one step closer to living. I saw the beauty in what comes around goes around from those one sided conversations.
You now those funny statements people make about avid readers and them saying I'll go to bed after I finish reading this chapter and before you know it it's morning and your still reading? Yeah! It's that good.
I got chills when Mason made a declaration about Sara's facial features when speaking about Lincoln.
I love the sneaky metaphors inserted periodically throughout the story. Your clever Lindy. I love when I have an epiphany. I wanted to shout out to Sara how are you so blind as to what is happening?
Well Lindy you made me cry when Mason introduced Derek and stated he had to live for him. I loved every single detail of this story. I never wanted it to end. It's amazing how some stories touch a place in your heart that you cannot let go of.
