Grief Reflections

Grief is sort of like a chronic condition.


Once you get it you will always have it. 

It can be managed and treated. 

But it will never go away. 

You can never be cured.  


At best you can learn to cope.      

At the worst it will consume you.


Grief is truly pent up love.  It is the love we cannot give away

because they are no longer here. If we can learn to slowly and gently

pour that love upon our memory of them,

gradually the pain grows less

as we nourish their memory

and it grows stronger

and more sacred to us.  RrSr
