    My all time favorite C. S. Lewis quote from The Last Battle” For us who have lost deeply, its greatly comforting. I’m not rushing it, but I’m sure not afraid of it. One half of me will always have a foot there.

    And as He spoke, He no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them. And for us this the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.“

    Healing is helped along by connecting with people who really understand.
