Life can truly be appreciated the most
when a loss occurs.
My wife’s only living grandmother passed away
Families from separate lives come together for rituals, ceremonies, grievances, hugs, kisses, stories and tears
We have to experience sorrow and tragedy in order to find happiness again
Do I want to drive an hour away on this cloudy Monday morning?
Did my wife ask for this to happen?
No one wants these things to interfere with daily routines
I lost my Grandpa 15 years ago and I read the eulogy
It was not easy but I did it….I’m sure he looked down on me with a smile
When funerals happen, they actually create blessings
Hot showers suddenly feel so much better
Watching a comedy can be so much funnier too
Eating food at the reception after the ceremony feels good
We can catch up on old friends and family members
Listen to their stories and share fond memories
My happy place is knowing that
I am not alone
I am blessed at a feast full of love
everywhere I go
