I am sure that you have seen the grief quotes on wall hangings, posters, FB postings that are meant to comfort. Sometimes they are helpful and other times I question who wrote it and why. I would love to hear from you about the ones that helped. I like the following one. I am not sure who wrote it but I thank him or her.
“Grief never ends but it changes. It is a passage but not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith. It is the price of love.”
Honestly, it’s been rough coping with the recent deaths of two very dear friends, my nephew’s mother who was very much a part of my life, and my daughter Keili’s godfather, Dr. Bill Womack, plus the Covid-19 illnesses and mass deaths. I sympathize with all of you who are struggling with the price of love as well.
As this challenging year ends and we are getting ready for 2021, HOPE is on the minds of many. New Year – New Life. It’s time to think about and pray about what we want and need for this new year. I am not normally big on resolutions but I know some of you are good at it. To renew hope in my life I will try a resolution this year to focus my attention on staying positive, being strong, celebrating life’s big and small victories.
Hau’oli Makahiki Hou! (Happy New Year!)
