My Thoughts: Hmmm….. where do I start? First of all, I must say this has been a very difficult time in my life. My mother and her immediate younger sister passed on within a span of three weeks and the pain from this heavy loss has been excruciating. I had actually started reading a book I had been so excited to read when my world came crashing in. It was hard to focus and I had no choice but to turn to God who knows all things and Christ who is the author and finisher of my faith. At the airport, on my way back home after laying my Aunt to rest and also just receiving the news that my mother had also passed on, I saw this book in a bookshop and I was led to pick it up. I read it on my long plane trip back home to Nigeria and I believe it was one of my first steps towards healing. I am still on the path to healing completely because when you loose two people you have loved so much all your life (Your two mothers!) in the way that I did, it takes time. God has been faithful and I am taking it one day at a time. This book is a good place to start if you are deeply discouraged due to loss or disappointment. I recommend it seriously and I urge you all to remember me and my entire family in your prayers.
