It's an Interesting Walk (and Talk ) with "Widow Walking Forward"'s Lisa Joy Walters!

It's an Interesting Walk (and Talk ) with "Widow Walking Forward"'s Lisa Joy Walters!

 A little bit of a change-up this week, but don't worry, my supply of bad jokes for the podcast is untouched. It's okay to discuss grief on a podcast that has a tendency to get silly on occasion, and Lisa Joy was the right person for this discussion. You'd think that a podcast with the word "Widow" in the title wouldn't raise your spirits, but for this show, you'd be wrong.  You can tell how her family has pulled together in a time of tragedy, and provides not only support for one another, but support for the listeners of her program.  My advice to you? Learn to be a "joyster", even though it's not always the easiest thing in the world. You'll see how Lisa is in touch with her spiritual side sand how it brings her comfort in the time of her husband Doug's passing. Although I never knew him, I'm sure Doug was a lucky man to have lived the life he did, and others are lucky to have remembered his impact on them as well. I'm guessing when I get called to that big Podcastia in the sky, peoples' fondest memory of me will be "So glad he finally learned to eat using utensils." (It's a start.)
