This book is about a mother's journey from paralyzing grief to healing, from despair to hope. Join Maggie, as she shares how God and family brought her through this life changing process.
Testimony from four year old Brendan and six year old Vincent, speaks words of conviction and honesty…. In the chapter entitled, “Hearts Broken,” my grandson, Brendan, looks into my eyes and says, ”It’s okay Gramma….I saw the angels take him to heaven.” In another story, my grandson, Vincent, captures my heart when he says, “I went to give him a hug and my hand went right through him.” In the chapter entitled “The Unseen Presence,” I write, “If it’s you Dad, will you turn the fan off? I promise I won’t be scared.”
It's difficult to put feelings and experiences into words. Maggie McGee obviously has this gift and has created a beautiful account of her family's journey after the accidental death of her 27 year old son, Brendan. Told with deep love and heartfelt spirituality, it is a truly hopeful message for all of us who have or will experience the paasing on of a loved one. Maggie, thank you for sharing your journey.
This comment is being written by Bob McGee, Maggie's husband. As a mother's day gift to her, I wanted to send out a message in her honor to any mother who is grieving the loss of a son or daughter, that if you sit down in a quiet comfortable place and read her book, you will totally identify and will no longer feel alone with your deep sadness. You will have "met" a mom who understands your pain. She is an amazing woman. It has been 10 years come September 11th 2013 since our son Brendan was called to his home in heaven and we still talk to him and feel his presence every day and know beyond a shadow of a doubt, Brendan is right here all the time and will be our guiding light until we are all together again one day. Missing him and loving him, Brendan's Dad.
I found this book to be very heartfelt and very real, bringing tears to my eyes and joy to my heart. The children's accounts were especially beautiful to me as I love children and believe their innocence allows them to see things that we, as adults, may not see.
My son was born and passed away 54 minutes later. Your book has helped me so much. I was starting to think I was making these "coincidences" up in my head and when you said you heard him I new I wasn't making it up. I hear my son too. Thank you so much for writing this book.
