Way 3: Finding Meaning
An important book I reread during this time was Viktor Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning. He actually managed to find meaning from the hell of his Auschwitz years.
Meaning came pretty quickly for both my then-husband and for me. After Sarah Grace was born, we took a walk around the Berkshire hills surrounding Kripalu. From that walk we created our own gift of meaning to our daughter, the Tour for Grace.
