"It is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. We all know that our time in this world is limited, and that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. And yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. It is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, and thinking there is one more stair than there is. Your foot falls down, through the air, and there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try and readjust the way you thought of things."
I ask for wealth
I ask for fame
I ask for glory to shine on my name
I ask for love, I can possess
I ask for God and His angels to bless me
Me every day at work
"When grieving, you live in the grief world. It’s not the same. It happens instantly and without your consent."
"Grief might be, in some ways, the long aftermath of love, the internal work of knowing, holding, more fully valuing what we have lost."
