Grief.
Grief
“is.”

It appears unexpectedly.
… wears different costumes.
… sometimes puts a smile on our face.
… often brings sadness to our heart.
… is not predictable
in either timing or outcome.

Grief
“is.”

When we acknowledge its presence,
we give it its space
and we recover
… somewhat
until
the next time
when grief appears
and
simply
is.

As the ebb and flow of grief
finds its way into life
may a gentle prayer
and warm shaft of healing light
wing its way to you
encouraging you to remember
you are stronger than you think you are
even through times when
grief is.
