I recently lost a friend unexpectedly. At one time, I would have called him a good friend but we had drifted apart after I retired and I was surprised to discover he had been suffering from leukemia for two years. And then I started beating myself up for being out of touch. it didn't help. But we all know that. We've all lost somebody unexpectedly, especially since covid. Here's an article that does help.
I was thinking of you when I stumbled across this article.
I just found this article written for Mother's day this morning. Even though late, it is still relevant.
I enjoyed this so much. Thank you for posting.
"Grief never ends, but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith. It is the price of love." Tiny Buddha
