When Williams mother made her long-distance telepathic call to her, it ignited a mystical connection between them. In her sometimes humorous but always thought-provoking style, Williams shares the amazing time spent with her mother as she was dying in a nursing home, in the care of hospice. Sprinkled with reflections on relationships (human and divine) and experiences (practical and mystical), this is an eye-opening testament to the opportunities for learning and growth that are a part of both living and dying.
Being blessed to be one of those called to the work of hospice, Williams has a special connection to the sacred relationship between the living and the dead. And while sharing the intimate details of their time together, she is always mindful of the diverse belief systems of those who may turn to this book in the midst of their own grief.
Williams asserts that the mother-link was established through dreams (before, during, and after her mothers death). She shares her reflections on that time, not only to encourage us to bring death (and the mysteries that surround it) into our everyday conversations, but to remind us to recognize and honor whom and what we have in our lives at this very moment. Were all finite beings on a temporary assignment on Earth. Williams clear message is to embrace life now.show more
