“Grief is as common as your hand; we all experience it at some point. But it’s also as specific as a fingerprint. We all feel it differently. It comes in waves, hitting you at unexpected places. The things you expect to trigger it often don’t, but other little things that seem to have nothing to do with anything suddenly come along and knock you flat out.
It heightens some emotions and neutralizes others. It’s as if the heart can’t figure out how to respond appropriately to anything anymore. Much like a child that’s very tired, that laughs and then cries uncontrollably.
Grief is a wild and woolly monster. At times helpful, at times dangerous.
But always, always unpredictable.”
One of my dearest friends texted me this quote last evening. I resonate with the words so much. Please keep my family in your prayers.
