I am really appreciating the grief group I attend at a place called Our House. It is such a nice group of people and we manage to laugh and talk and cry together quite easily. The bond from this loss will inevitably last forever and we will each give and take that which we can and need.
At the end of each group meeting, we receive a reading that we read out loud. I really appreciate these readings. Here is the latest that really has stuck with me:
Some people come into our lives and quickly go
Some people move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same.
My soul definitely danced from the moment I met Eddie. I am not sure it will ever dance that way again but it is forever warmed by his having been with it for those 11 years. He imparted so much wisdom on me that sticks with me to this day. I try so hard to listen at those moments that I would have sought it still.
Hugs to all,
