Just in case you need it
It’s probably my age, but it sure seems like I know a lot of people dealing with grief.
I am dealing with grief.
For my father, who died November 30 last year; for my mother, who is losing herself as dementia’s inevitable fog creeps forward each day; for a dearly loved friend and family member who was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer out of the blue; for my dog, Murphy, who was by my side for 14 years, literally every day I was home in Denver.
It’s part of being human. Those we love die. Those that are irreplaceable to those we love die.
And we never know what to do, what to say, how to respond.
Which is why you should read THIS. It doesn’t take long.
Loss is inevitable. Grief is inevitable.
How we respond to it is the measure of our concern, caring and humanity.
“Perhaps tragedies are only tragedies in the presence of love, which confers meaning to loss. Loss is not felt in the absence of love.” ~ Elizabeth Alexander, The Light of the World.
Someone you know, someone you love, will need your comfort and support sooner than you will want.
Be as ready as you can.
THIS will help.
