Seeing that I have been grieving one thing or another for most of my life, this is a beautiful quote that brings comfort to my heart. I had to share.
"Grief is neither a disorder nor a healing process; it is a sign of health itself, a whole and natural gesture of love. Nor must we see grief as a step toward something better. No matter how much it hurts—and it may be the greatest pain in life—grief can be an end in itself, a pure expression of love."
