Good Grief!

What is it about grief that either separates us from others, or brings us closer together? There’s no wishy-washy middle ground. For those of us who have lost someone close, grief still lurks around every corner, waiting to pounce. A song, a special time of day, a fleeting memory, these are the things that bring a tear to the eye and a longing to the heart.
We must teach others that grief can’t be avoided and won’t be ignored. When we show others how we grieve, we show them how to live beyond the feeling. Grief, loss, suffering, all part of our human existence, all part of God’s omnipotent plan.
