...the characteristic feeling of sadness, grief, or regret associated with loss, bereavement, sympathy for another's suffering, for an injury done.
I have not had a very good couple of weeks lately. My job has been very stressful. To the point where I may need to quit. My granddaughter was very sick and hospitalized for a couple of days. I have gotten myself so run down with stress and lack of sleep that I too have become ill and very depressed. Then today I find out that my sisters very close friend is dying from multiple cancers growing within her.
SORROW is a word that describes life right now.
I try, when I write my blogs, to turn every word into a positive. Today's word has become a challenge for me. When a person feels SORROW they normally reach out to others for support. Not me. I clam within and lock the doors. So for me to even be writing this blog is probably the most positive thing I can imagine I am doing for this dreadful word...SORROW. But let me give this a try.
SORROW seeps deep within a persons chest and makes a nest right next to, and sometimes within, their heart. It lays there creating what we can not describe nor can we sometimes control...but with time...it finds its way to the stairway that leads to this persons eyes, and escapes in the disguise of tears. It's those tears that release this SORROW and hopefully standing by, is a friend with open arms and a box of kleenex...SORROW...it hurts but it does go away...with time.
