There may be days or even weeks on the calendar when I find myself mysteriously feeling melancholy or blue, only to realize the anniversary of someone or something I have loved and lost is approaching. Even when I don’t realize it outright, a part of me remembers and responds. As I honor my feelings, I honor the people and places that have helped me evolve and from whom I have learned.
Welcoming my feelings brings deep and abiding comfort. I carry those people and places I love in my mind, heart, and the things I do. I keep their memory alive in me. Gradually, I find smiles within the sadness. Revisiting treasured memories reveals the love within the loss. The awareness of my DIVINITY is found within each moment. I find comfort through my grateful heart.
