Kevin and Suzy Taggart’s life was perfect.
They raised their combined six children and were enjoying life as empty nesters. With four wonderful grandchildren and another on the way, they had everything they wanted: a great family, friends, careers, and each other.
Then the unthinkable happened. A silent illness struck Kevin down at age fifty-three, and three days after Suzy rushed him to the hospital, he unexpectedly passed away. Devastated, Suzy spiraled into a depression so deep she never expected to crawl out. Grieving, two weeks after Kevin’s death, she began writing a journal to him; through it and with the help of God, her counselor, and support from family and friends, she was able to climb her way out of the black hole.
The Healing Game shares Suzy’s journey of losing her beloved husband, hitting rock bottom, and painfully finding her way back to her life. Suzy’s deeply personal writing reveals how she learned to grieve, work through her emotions, remember the good times, and once more embrace love.
For those who have lost a loved one, The Healing Game not only offers comfort and support, but also shows you that God is ever-faithful and always by your side.
The author has rated this book G (all ages).
“Suzy, we need to let Dad go. You need to tell him it’s okay for him to go.”
“I can’t. I can’t do that. I don’t want him to go; please don’t make me say
that. If I do, he’ll be gone.”
“He needs to hear it from each of us, and that is why he’s been holding on.He needs to know everyone will be okay. When I went in to talk to him by myself, I told him it was okay to go, and that we would all take care of you. He is worried about you. When I said it, he turned his head toward me.
He hadn’t moved in all the hours I had been in there with him. He wants to make sure you’re all right.”
“I don’t know, Megan. I need some time. I can’t do it. I can’t do it right now.” The tears rolled down my face.
“He loves you, and I told him you would be all right. Just think about it.”
About an hour later, I realized she was right. I went to Kevin and sat and talked with him in the dark room as if he were awake. I didn’t know if he could hear me or not; I just told him what my heart longed to say.
