Margaret T Naughton is an experienced hospital chaplain, and knows first hand the impact of illness, whether sudden or more slow-burning. This book is an attempt to provide a companion the pathway of illness. It is written for both the person grappling with illness, and those around them, to help make sense of illness and the impact it can have on life and faith. For those directly affected by illness, there can be questions around meaning, purpose and hope in life. There can be flashes of hopelessness and desolation. There can be a multitude of unending questions, thoughts and considerations about ourselves, our families, our future and our God. If someone you care about is struggling with illness, you may be unsure how best to help. When your friend or loved one is ill, the greatest gift you can give them is your presence - simply 'being there'. You may not always comprehend what's going on for them, but do not turn away. in the midst of a world so alien and so frightening they need, in fact they crave, your normality, your presence, your humour, and your love.
