How To Be Grateful

I found this blog post somewhere on the internet, and it is just perfect. It describes how to grow through the grief of losing someone you love so much. Please take a minute and read it:

Here's my favorite part:


Eventually, the world that you thought had cracked?
It had only split open to show you the magic inside it.
Where once you feared darkness, there was only light.

Miracles have happened every year since my brother died.
What I know for sure about death?
That it’s all a gift.
That we never lose anything.
And that our relationship with the ones we love can keep growing,
changing and blooming even when they are dead.
Isn't that just beautiful? This is what I'm talking about when I've been feeling like there was some major growing for me to do through the death of my Daddy.
There are already miracles, just from the fact that I am back in touch with my 3 aunts, Daddy's 3 sisters, and I am so glad to be talking to them. It makes me feel very close to Daddy to talk to them. I hear stories about things from a perspective I've never had before. This is maybe my first miracle. And after reading this blog post, I expect there will be more and more, though I have no idea WHAT they will be. This makes me very happy and hopeful.

Peace and love to everyone!
