The Thaw. Thoughts on Grief

She was no longer wrestling with the grief, but could sit down with it as a lasting companion and make it a sharer in her thoughts. ~George Eliot

This time of year I refer to as The Thaw. The season when winter is almost behind us, and spring is truly trying to make her debut.

It seems like I wrestle emotionally every February through early April and then with the Lord’s help, my mind and heart finally starts to get a grip. The grief starts to get manageable usually around Easter, and I begin to feel human again.

This is a strange first post. I know.

For those of you grieving, I hope you wrestle through your tough season and  get to a time and space where you can graciously reminisce.

That is my prayer for you today.
