This is what I can offer, today, about grief. (an older posting about grief, here)
(On a day when I am grieving, & shedding lots of tears, & grateful for the tears - as they are a relief from the anger that has been too much present, of late.)
So ... thank you, grief ... & tears.
(Grief is never welcome, exactly ... but the tears are healing, surely, & so, I am grateful for them.)
