The last few days have been emotionally draining. My other half said goodbye to a friend and our hearts are heavy. There’s a space in the world that is empty now because of his passing. The memories don’t fill the shoes, don’t keep his side of the bed warm for his wife or wrap their arms around his son. Memories will help when time passes, but for now they don’t stop the pain our friends feel.
The comfort that exists when grief is shared is something that should never be forgotten. But my heart is heavy, the candle will shine, and I will try to love every opportunity I’m sent.
