Let it flow as you say:
So Long to a Dear One
When someone passes through to Heaven, someone so truly dear to our heart and soul, the depth of pain cannot be given words. When this person passes unexpectantly, that depth somehow seems even more cutting. We definitely find ourselves asking, "Why"?! We find ourselves questioning God and our faith seems shattered.
We begin the journey through the stages of grief:
Shock, denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
This journey will be different for each of us in time and emotion. Hopefully at some point in time, we will be able to feel some sense of peace as life continues and the proverbial saying that "Time heals all wounds" lends some truth to our pain as it begins to wane, or at least loses some of its depth.
As we find our way out of the depression and begin to remember the beauty, humor and vibrancy of the one who has passed, we find a way to feel their Spirit and know that they are with us, guiding us and loving us.
We find a way to be happy for their soul as they reside in Heaven.
And our Faith returns as we know that we will someday, “meet again”!
May we all find a way to believe that the passing of a "Dear One" does not mean "Goodbye", but rather "So-Long" and until then, may we
Live to our Fullest Extent
with the light of our Guardian Angel leading the way!
Sending you love and light,
