For a long time, I struggled with the thought of Preslee drowning. As her mom, I felt I had failed her when I wasn’t there when she needed me most. I had reoccurring nightmares of the pain I thought she must have experienced while in the canal. At times it consumed me.
Months later I began reading different accounts of drowning victims who later lived to tell their story. It didn’t matter their religion, I wanted to know what they had experienced. Even if I was skeptical of their story, it surprised me how similar all of the stories all were. They all talk about peace, and very little pain - if they felt any at all.
A sweet reader sent me this video clip, and I wanted to share it with anyone else struggling with the same feelings I once felt. After receiving many of your stories, and reading so many personal accounts, I truly believe Preslee didn’t struggle for very long, and her spirit left this world in a peaceful state.
The video below is about an orthopedic surgeon, named Mary Neal. I know a lot of people don’t believe in these kinds of things, but I truly am grateful for those who share their experiences with death. They’ve definitely helped a devastated grieving mom more than they will ever know.
You can find Mary’s book here.
Have any of you read any interesting/comforting books? If so, I’d love to know which ones.
