  • A Brave Woman

    I read the book "Lessons of Love," written by Melody Beattie, mother of Nichole Beattie. The book was written in 1994, and it tells the true story of the challenges that Melody and Nichole went through after Nichole took her brother, Shane skiing, unaware that he was goinmg to die in a skiing accident. Nichole spent 2 years drinking to deal with her grief. She also spent 2 years blaming herself for her brother's death. But Melody has helped Nichole understand that the accident was not her fault. Nichole finally sought counseling to deal with her grief and depression. In 1991, when Christmas rolled around, Nichole did not celebrate the holiday because she did not feel like celebrating because of what happened. On the second anniversary of Shane's death, Nichole and her mother both spoke together at grief conference in Texas. In many ways, Nichole had much more to say and share her grief with the convention than her mom did. Nichole is a brave woman..moreless
