"To love deeply is one of life’s most profound gifts, and the loss of a loved one is one of life’s most profound tragedies. That they can happen simultaneously, and that we somehow manage to, one day, find even a morsel of joy in our hearts again, is profoundly and wonderfully mysterious".
Grief is a natural, normal emotion.
Grief is a journey, it has no specific end point.
We grieve because we have loved deeply.
We walk with grief because thats what we get to do.
At some point, we will have small reconnections to joy.
