“Do not be ashamed to weep; ’tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers and trees and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.”
-For everyone who understands loss, but cannot forget; I say to you ferverently, “t’is really better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.’ And although we may succumb to the end of all things, our greatest power is that all love lives on through words- making it impossible to cease a memory- and perfectly possible to erase the webs in our museum of grief and re-paint the picture full of happy moments… Afterall, “God gave us memories so that we might have roses in December…”
One thought on “Roses In December”
beautiful thoughts…life is so inextricably connected to loss. I hope you can keep your memories very near.
