It rained for days
after you left me,
as if the sky itself
shared my grief.
. John Mark Green .
With the monsoons rains upon us, this quote really spoke to me this morning, and reminded me of a journal entry I had made, I thought I would share it with all of you.
I hope that today this might bring you some comfort as you move forward with your broken heart.
In those first days and weeks following the loss of JLB I found myself trying to make the best of a miserable situation. This is the first time I really remember me trying to find gifts in the littlest things around me. I know that it has helped me not only on those early days of my grief journey, but has continued to be helpful as I have gone through the years.
Is there something that you can find beauty in today? Is there an unrecognized gift in your life? It could be the extra long embrace with a friend, the giggle of your little one, or just the smell of the air brought on by these beautiful monsoon rains.
I hope that today your heart feels a warm embrace in knowing that you are not alone.
