Grief changes us. It makes us harder, yet somehow softer. It teaches you to appreciate more, yet not take things too seriously. It makes you more vulnerable, yet tough as nails. It teaches you that every moment is a gift, yet you’re willing to try new things and take more risk because you realize life is so short.
Somehow, losing a loved one molds you into a better human being, as you learn from life’s lessons. So today, even if you grieve, know that you have an angel watching down upon you, that has made you that much stronger! And if you are lucky, really lucky, you may even have them walking by your side when you need it. ~MWL
