When You Least Expect It

DSC01299

Crying when someone dies is expected. It’s hard to find a dry eye in those early days of grieving. As time goes by, tears come and go. The heart adjusts to the loss, but nothing is ever the same. Someone is missing and that doesn’t change.

Grieving, like loving, lasts a lifetime. Eventually, you learn to laugh again, to lose yourself in a given moment, to celebrate and appreciate life and those around you. In time, the sun shines again, but like a sudden shower on a warm summer’s day, tears of grief start to flow…when you least expect it. Grief, like love, lasts a lifetime.

  1. So true…”The heart adjusts to the loss, but nothing is ever the same. Someone is missing and that doesn’t change.”

  2. I look forward to the day that my pain of losing my husband doesn’t hurt like it does now.

  3. I call those times of grief my “Mommy Moments” They are brief, but still come even after 22 years.
