Here’s an excerpt from the book. The quote is from the chapter on single parent families and it is in reference to children going through divorce. I think it applies to any family going through any kind of loss, including the loss caused by natural disaster.￼

If you and the children are making steady progress away from the sense of loss, you are all growing in the many areas of life, you can feel assured that growth will continue. It has become a pattern, a habit that will not easily be forgotten.￼ (2012, Chapman, page 188)
March is my birthday month and my present to myself is to read a novel. I was inspired by National Parks With T to read a novel set in a National Park. So my book this was month is, Where the Fire Falls by Karen Barnett.
