GRIEF

Today we learned that Dana Reeves passed away from lung cancer – just a little over a year after her husband Chris died. Left behind is their 13-year old son. It doesn’t seem fair, does it? But then, as we all know, life isn’t fair.

I’ve had my share of death in my somewhat young life. What has it taught me? Not much. Sure, everyone sings the song of cherishing life and being strong and blah, blah, blah. The only thing I know for sure is that it hurts, and the hurt never goes away, it just becomes less vocal.

I think it is important to make your life count – and that can mean many things to many people. It is never too late to pursue your dreams and the things that make you happy.

Yes...I understand. The distribution of grief somehow always seems so skewed, too...
