WaltC Posted July 9, 2006 Report Share Posted July 9, 2006 (edited) More words of wisdom from Martha Hickman’s Healing After Loss -The BAD News: “Real grief is not healed by time….If time does anything it deepens our grief. The longer we live, the more fully we become aware of who she was for us, and the more intimately we experience what her love meant for us…..Yes, indeed love often makes itself visible in pain” – HENRI NOUWENI, among many here no doubt, can attest to the reality of that statement. As time passes I am missing my Jeannie more and more as each day as I realize that she was, and still is, an integral part of my very being.The GOOD News: “…this ongoing process also promises that, in a way, loved ones will never leave us, that their lives will continue to nourish and, yes, change us - that they will, indeed, be with us always in the mutual interdependence of love.”My Thanks to Martha and also to my friends here who have made this journey through the valley of Grief bearable.
