Endurance

jeanfroner

Loss is such a hard thing to cope with.  It seems like everyone is afraid to lose someone they love, and with good reason.  The things we miss are concrete: hugging the person, hearing the person laugh, sharing a meal with the person.  Mostly it's all the simple things we miss, the details.  But I find that connecting with the spirit of a loved one is possible even in death.  The spirit is what we really connect to in life anyway, at least in my view, and keeping that loved one's spirit close to your heart will always help you endure.
