Quote of the Day

My process of mourning was not a function of wanting what I had back.  I think for many people this view of grieving is a foreign one.  My grief took the form of adjusting to change.  I had gained so much through this process.  I am past asking questions like "why did this happen so late in life for me?" or "how could I have not realized this before I married and began my family?"  Knowing the why does not help change it or make sense of things.  I have found that line of thinking to be more confusing in the end.  Why is irrelevant at times.  What I do in the present is truly the important piece of the puzzle.
