“Love transcends time and space and circumstance and allows us the privilege of drawing near to those we care so much about___.”
“When you are tired of it all and nothing seems worth the time and trouble___remember it isn’t that you do not want life anymore___it is simply that you need more of life___more of it and of a far better quality. ____Everyone has felt sick, left out, overcome by age and weariness or circumstance___no one ever travels a route alone___but only those who persist in despair give up___and those who change their minds and reach out in giving and loving and respect find a sure path beneath their feet___and then, they find doors opening to them that they did not know existed!” Joyce Hifler, Pathways.
Grief no matter whether it is a loss of someone or if there are other reasons to feel as you do. We grieve many more things, and it’s all according to what it is. This time it’s been about Tom, but I still recall other people and other experiences that have made me feel despair and depression. But in the back of my mind, or perhaps in my gut I have this fire that burns, and it’s a love for life! And the people I care about. I recognize I need “more of life” and it is what will pull me into living more fully. My confidence and comfort can come from knowing how loved I was by Thomas. I may not know what happens in the future but I am the one to find the adventure now. There will be people along the way so it won’t be a lonely adventure. There is hope in what is good. There are things to embrace, and love. Life will be what I make it to be.
