There is no expiring date on grief….grieving is something that happens and we have no control of how it will affect us or for how long we will live with the emptiness and sense of loss.
Its a door that just never closes… a pain that seeps into every nook and cranny of your being. Just when you think you’ve moved on, when you feel the sun on your face, or a chirping bird sits on your shoulder, yes there is that moment of awe and pleasure, but… it passes… then the shadow slips in, and you feel the burden of the pain, the emptiness of loss.
“Time heals” you hear it time and time again.. yet as the years go by, when you least expect it… a sliver of the cold grief wraps around your heart once again. There is nothing to be done… it will pass. It does, but let me tell you, from the moment the icicle begins to drips its glistening tear, you are engulfed in the hopeless feeling of loss. The shattered pieces of your heart lie like broken shard with edges that are still too sharp to even begin to pick up.
You can’t go back .. you can’t retreat, you can only accept and live through the moment. The more you seek solitude, the more it eludes you. Love that endures, love that wraps its tentacles into forever, is beautiful, but it has a cost. How many moments were squandered, lost to foolish pride/ego. The seasons will change. and yes, you will get by, you will live another day… But oh… how crippling the grief is when it comes to call.
Make today a memorable day. Let’s try to put our whole heart into whatever we say or do, as our unique signature.Perfect Liberty 2022. 26

Good afternoon… thank YOU so much,… sending warm vibes your way….
It is true. Grief can ambush you at any moment. It is a testament to the depth of the love that we have for that person. Love never ends- the apostle Paul said that and it is true. I wish I could hug your pain away, dear friend, but mine isn’t the hug you want. Just know I am thinking of you and remembering Brian.
thank you dear Mollie…. miss you.. stay safe and stay warm!!!
