THE MORNING SHOW
Surrendering To Joy
On an August night in San Francisco, Suzanne’s 22-year-old daughter Teal collapsed from a sudden, unexplainable cardiac arrest. This was just a few months after she lost my relationship, my home and a career.
Six days later Teal died, but not before Suzanne began to discover the strange and powerful joy that lives inside of loss.
In the year that followed, a great love woke up in her as she wrote essay after essay. She learned to let go of ‘her story’, forgive those who had wronged her, and reclaim the power she had lost long ago.
This is healing that is available to all of us … no matter what the loss.
