Anora McGaha "The Blessing" at the Joyful Jewel 5-31-15

"The Blessing"
Anora McGaha

I have read this book by Anora Sutherland McGaha and today am remembering someone I lost recently and my dear friend who lost him too. A death is a life-changing event for the one who is left. Anora's story is a fairy tale about healing and grief, written to give real attention and compassion to a feeling that often gets brushed aside, especially when the loss if of a pet and the one who is left is a child.  Of course this can be true for adults as well as children -- there is a wish for the grief to subside before it's time. In the book, a child who has been overcome with grief is listened to and helped with sweetness and power to move back in to her life. The emotion's cause and circumstances are not exactly defined, but the feeling is, and in a way that deepens the experience for the reader. Would be a great book for any age person who has lost a pet, who has moved away from good friends, or in any situation where deep understanding and a kind of magic are necessary for a person to move on.  "The Blessing" by Anora Sutherland [McGaha)], Book, 19 pages
