Item description for Life Is a Gift: Inspiration from the Soon Departed by Bob Fisher & Judy Fisher...
Overview Draws on more than one hundred interviews with hospice patients to share inspirational life lessons learned at the end of life, in an inspirational volume that is thematically arranged in chapters that address such topics as family, regret, and forgiveness.
Publishers Description In candid interviews, terminal patients in the Alive Hospice program talked with authors Bob and Judy Fisher, addressing some of the most important questions we ask about our life and how we've made the journey. These end-of-life ponderings are collected into inspirational and provoking thoughts that will encourage each of us to live life fully. Each story is reflected in thematic chapters-priorities, family, simple pleasures, romance, integrity, regret, forgiveness-crafted into a series of "lessons learned," offering motivation to approach life with more vigor. These powerful stories deliver the clear message that if you wait to really live until you know you are going to die, you risk missing much of the joy life has to offer and the chance to leave a positive legacy.
