Healing, One Bite at a Time

Healing, One Bite at a Time

There is an old joke that goes, "How do you eat an elephant?"

"I don't know, how do you?"

"One bite at a time."

*No elephants were harmed in the making of this blog post.

Author Interview: About Me and "Finding Heaven"

Yes, the work of grief must be done on an individual basis. But knowing that we were never alone had a significant impact on how brave we were in approaching that work.
