the gift of relief after a death…

Recently, customers have been telling me that Begin Here is a really good gift for someone who has just had a death in the family. Personally, giving and receiving flowers never suited me, unless they are picked by the giver from their garden (or in my case, as a child, I would take them from neighbors-I was YOUNG and I am sure I later apologized!) My mom was a florist and I love flowers; however, my typical gift – if flowers were the appropriate response – would usually be a plant or something that would last longer. I have been getting many orders from customers who are ordering several books at a time. They are telling me they are giving them as gifts.

There may be a situation where you may want to express your condolences, but maybe an $80 bouquet of flowers is not in your budget, or it seems impersonal or simply inappropriate to you. If you have a friend, colleague, employee, employer, relative or neighbor that you want to help and express your condolences, this book would be an exceptional way to do so. I continue to hear “I gave your book to my friend, she was so thankful; and now, my neighbor’s mom just died, so I ordered another” something to think about the next time you find out someone in your life is struggling with a loss. There will be a plethora of flowers and plants for the survivor after the funeral, usually too many to keep; the book would give them actual, tangible help that they need during an extremely difficult and numbing time in their life. Peace…
