No Straight Lines in Grief

Grief is unlike anything else I’ve experienced.  

There’s no pattern, no clear path, no steps a heart can follow to get from broken to healed.

And that adds to the burden.  Because there is so much pressure on bereaved parents to “get better” (whatever that means!).

I wonder sometimes who imagines that if there was a way to be free of this sorrow I wouldn’t jump on it?

All I can do is go where the grief takes me.

No shortcuts.

No detours.
