Today I am walking in grief for someone who was very dear to me. She played the role of a mother in many ways, and I wouldn't be who I am today without her in my life. I am grateful to know she is free from pain and as another dear friend exclaimed to me, 'SHE IS WHOLE AGAIN!' Knowing this eases the pain, but I remember that grief is a journey, never a destination. I have lost many, too many, dear friends in my life who I still grieve years past. Each road through grief, I learn something new about myself and the journey I walked with the person who left this world. I embrace all my emotions, good and the not so good, knowing that they made up the relationship that I had with this person. That is love. That is gift. May you always remember that your grief has many layers and there are no time limits on when it is supposed to be healed in the end.
