Grief is not..

Saturday, December 03, 2011

Grief is not a sign of weakness nor a loss of faith, it is th price of love.
My neighbor is brain "dead" in the hospital for 16 days. She is still breathing without aid.
I bring cookies to her adult children and sit with them for a while. But I cannot stay all day.. I was not able to do this for my mother either. I do not seem to be capable to just sit and wait with them.
Grief is not a sign of weakness nor a loss of faith , it is the price of love..
God be with you today and thank you for any kind words . But feelings diminshed and denied will return.. But feelings, well felt, will pass. This I believe is our nature..

the picture is my mom, her sister and her niece, my sister. They are the faithful ones.

    Because you cannot sit and wait - does not mean that you are not faithful. You were all you could be for your mother and gave so much of yourself from afar. For your neighbor as much as you pray that you could sit with her and her family - your thoughts and prayers are reflected in your diligence. Not a sign of are so right.

May you be wrapped with blessings today and everyday as you journey yet through another sadness.

Much love
