This passage speaks volumes to me….I cannot read it enough…..
"It's time for me to stop. There is much left to explore and deepen into as we consider healing through grief but then the first teaching that grief brought me was that we never "complete" our grieving. We are never finished with it. Our grief lives with us as long as we live.
It changes. It has rhythm's. Sometimes it is present in its absence and sometimes it is absence that makes our grief present. Sometimes we are strong and fearless in the face of our grief and sometimes we are frightened and vulnerable. It is all part of the tapestry of our lives and by the very act of weaving our losses into that tapestry, we ensure that our losses are part of our wholeness. And so we heal".
