Find the Beauty in the Tragedies
Posted by Literary Titan
Walking with Spirits: Paying It Forward During a Global Pandemic shares your story about connecting to the spirit of your son and getting guidance on performing this amazing act of charity. Why was this an important book for you to write?
This book was important for me to write as I had young grandchildren, one who was entering the world during this time. As adults, we were having a hard time navigating our lives through the early days of the pandemic, with the country shutting down, many suddenly without income. The isolation from others, was difficult to handle as adults, so I couldn’t even imagine what was happening in the minds of our young children. I wanted them to be able to look back years from now and truly understand how the pandemic affected people’s lives. The good, the bad, and the ugly side of it all. I am not sure the history books will do that side of the pandemic the justice it deserves. This book was also my way of reminding them, that life can suddenly change without warning, and not always for the better. However, it is through our darkest moments, that we learn to find the beauty in the tragedies.
I appreciated the candid nature with which you told your story. What was the hardest thing for you to write about?
This whole timeline and event was so emotional, that it made all of it very difficult to write. The sudden loss of income brought people from all walks of life through our doors. The emotions that came along with them were difficult to see, especially with the men. Who are taught from a young age to be the providers, they were now feeling like failures for not being able to do so for their families. the best part was the tears of embarrassment always turned to tears of gratitude.
What were some ideas that were important for you to share in this book?
The synchronicities during this time, were to incredible not to share with the world. The way spirit orchestrates a situation and brings it to life, is never anything shy of amazing. The day of the dog food story was my favorite day during this whole event, because it was filled with spirit and their mysterious, yet, magical ways.
What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your story?
The one thing I hope everyone takes away from reading my book is that their loved ones who have transitioned to the other side, are still very much involved in the day to day events of your life. When My son transitioned, I set out on a mission to give a voice to those in spirit. Through Chayse, and his guidance, along with others, this book does just that. It shows the world that those we love, never go away. They walk beside us everyday. Guiding and protecting us, while unconditionally loving us through, this crazy ride!
