Returning to Joy | Inspiration for Grieving the Loss of Your Dog
INSTEAD OF FLOWERS
You will always grieve in some way for someone or something you loved so deeply.
I, too, grieve the loss of my shepherds from my childhood, as I trusted them with all my darkest secrets.
God gifted you with a loyal companion to teach you about unconditional love and gratitude.
What an honor and a blessing for your dog’s life to have been interwoven with yours.
This book is dedicated to all the beautiful souls grieving a loss of any kind despite knowing that loss is an inevitable part of life.
May these words and images help you find joy, inspiration, and the courage to move forward in your journey.
As you do, I know that all the grief you feel will find a new and beautiful place to go.
"After witnessing my devastation over the loss of my 13-year-old lab, Pablo, my friend gave me this book. I’m so grateful she did. It’s the perfect way to honor my grief over losing a dear friend. Reading the beautiful messages each day allowed me to take a moment to just feel, rather than quashing my feelings and just trying to get on with life. I love keeping this book out on my coffee table because, not only is it beautiful and comforting, it’s also like having a little reminder of Pablo around – and that makes it priceless." - Kelly P.
