Share Your Miraculous Moment

Yesterday afternoon on Your Caregiving Journey, Elissa Al-Chokhachy joined me to discuss her book and our March Caregiving Book Club pick, Miraculous Moments, True Stories that Life Goes On. You can listen to our discussion via the player, below.

Miraculous Moments is a collection of 88 stories from individuals telling a true tale about connecting to family members and friends who have died. The authors write about hearing, seeing and embracing family members who have died. The book also contains stories from individuals who have had near-death experiences---they've seen the light.

During our discussion, Elissa offered a suggestion if you'd like to connect with someone who has died; simply make the request, she said. She also offered insights to help those in pain because of a significant loss who may wonder why they haven't received a sign or a message from a family member.

Reading the book reminded me of the stories my father told about his childhood visits to his grandmother's house. He and his brother considered the house "haunted" because the rocking chair rocked, seemingly on its own. The adults in the family, though, knew it was my grandmother's mother, back for a visit.
