The Gift of Grief


Death takes away. That's all there is to it.
But grief gives back.By experiencing it, we are not simply eroded by pain.Rather, we become more compassionate, more aware,more able to help others, more able to help ourselves.

Grief is powerful. It plunges us into the depths of sorrow and forces us to face the finiteness of life, the mightiness of death, and the meaning of our existence here on this earth.

It does more than enable us to change: it demands it.  The way we change is up to us. It is possible to be forever bowed by grief.  It is possible to be so afraid of one aspect of it that we become frozen in place, stuck in sorrow, riveted in resentment or remorse, unable to move on.

But it is also possible to be enlarged, to find new direction,
and to allow the memory of the beloved person who has died to live on within us... not as a monument to misery,
but as a source of strength, love and inspiration.

By acting on our grief, we can eventually find within ourselves a place of peace and purposefulness.  It is my belief that all grievers, no matter how intense their pain, no matter how rough the terrain across which they must travel, can eventually find that place within their hearts.

from Theresa, Still Grieving 3
A Solitary Journey

Grief is a solitary journey. No one but you knows how great the hurt is. No one but you can know the gaping hole left in your life when someone you know has died. And no one but you can mourn the silence that was once filled with laughter and song. It is the nature of love and of death to touch every person in a totally unique way.

Comfort comes from knowing that people have made the same journey. And solace comes from understanding how others have learned to sing again.

Angel Stitches: Mending a Grieving Heart for the Rest of your Life

"I started writing when Cassy died. I needed a safe place to write what I was feeling. Then I wanted to write to keep Cassy's memory alive. Every grieving mother's worst fear is, that her child will be forgotten. Before long, I was writing for yet another reason. People were writing to me and telling me that my writings to email lists were helping them with their own grief. Or to learn about what to do for someone is grieving. Each letter I received, telling me how much I had helped someone, let me know that Cassy would not be forgotten. Her legacy of helping people, would never end. My daughter, my Cassy, will live on and help others through my words.

I have had people tell me I should make a profit off my book. That is something I absolutely REFUSE to do. To make a profit of a single cent, would be like making a profit from my child's death. That is unthinkable to me. I charge $25.00 for my book. That price includes priority mail shipping. It costs me just under $20 to print my book on my computer. For some reason, the post office weighs each book differently. They say it has to do with the grade of paper, from ream to ream. Some cost just over $5 to ship and some just under $5 to ship. If your book is less than $5 for postage, the extra will go into a special Christmas fund. Each year, Cassy chose six names from the Giving Tree at Wal-Mart. She would buy gifts for each of the six children for Christmas. The money from the special Christmas fund will go towards the same thing. I will pick six children's names and buy gifts in memory of Cassy. I know it is something she would have done herself. She loved doing this and I will always do this in her memory.

The book is standard printer paper size. It contains 170 pages, including pictures of Cassy. I take care that every book is perfect. They are bound for me by Office Max in a plastic spiral binding with hard back cover and a plastic protective front cover.

If you have any questions, comments or want to place an order, please email me at angelstitches@hotmail.com.
