In this season of my life, I have been noticing death and dying has come up more times than I realize. Death of friends loved ones, and seeing friends through the dying process of a loved one. The one thing that keeps coming up is grief, and grieving. Yet, the word for today is heal.
There is no one way or a right way to grieve. There legitimately is nothing you can say or do for a friend who is grieving and experiencing the death of a loved one. The only thing you can do is be in their presence and listen to them.
But this quote by Tom Zuba really resonates with me and I would like to end with it. “There are no quick fixes to grief. No easy answers. Every expression of grief that wants to be felt and honored and given its space must be allowed… in order to heal.”
