Healing is a Journey.

I hope my words will serve as a caring presence as you forge a trail to the deep river of healing that grief can open up in you. Whether you take it a step at a time or blaze the trail like there’s no tomorrow, healing is the journey of a lifetime, because healing can change everything – grief, love, even death. But now I’m getting ahead of myself. First, healing requires you to become familiar with the nuances of your grief. Indeed, your grief is the sickle with which to clear the trail to the river.
