“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4 ESV
At times, I do feel a sense of grief to some degree, working through the various stages. But a neighbor friend of mine who is a widow and mother of 5 has given me much perspective. I’m sure she has her days, but she is a pillar of strength and grace. I think of her often and when I do, I feel a sense of responsibility to get it together. I don’t feel that you have to compare grief, pain or loneliness in order to allow yourself to feel such, but when I feel that I’m being swallowed by it, being able to do for others with a greater need is the perspective I always want.
