Loss Profound ...

A friend's daughter passed away, one year ago tonight.

She and her husband have kept me in perpetual awe. They have traversed this year with more grace than I can fathom.

What they experienced sets a level in my mind. All other grief is relative to it.

So I'm reflecting on my emotional day and realizing that while what I am feeling is real, it pales in comparison to what others have experienced in the same hours.

Today, others have no doubt been visited with loss much more profound.

My life goes on, sadder for a time, but for the better in the end.


There is peace in the passage of time.
