Chicken Soup For The Soul - Grieving and Recovery Review and Giveaway



Most people I'm sure have been through the loss of a loved one, is close to someone else that has or has even helped someone through the grieving process.  When we lose a loved one we all react differently to the loss.  Some may move through the process relatively quickly and others it may take a long time.

When my grandpa passed on it didn't take me long to get over his death.  I think that was because he had been sick for a while so I was able to mentally prepare myself for the inevitable.  I was just a little upset that he passed 2 short months before his great grandson was born.  At least I have pictures and wonderful memories of him that I can share with my son when he's older.

I was sent a copy of Chicken Soup For The Soul - Grieving and Recovery and though I haven't made it through the whole book yet I have read several stories.  Some bring tears to the eyes, especially those that involve the loss of an infant and others make you smile.  That's what's great about these books.  Each story is a quick read so it's easy to pick it up where you left off or not even read it in order if that's what you wish.  It's always nice to hear real stories from real people who have been through something similar as ourselves.

Three of my readers are going to receive a copy of this book.  For the main entry just comment on why you'd like this book.  Contest is open to Canada and the US and ends on May 19th.
