Every Wednesday

Every other Wednesday, I will post a reflection on the landscape of grief. This blog isn't just for widowers. It's for everyone who grieves. I want to encourage people to share their stories and compassion with each other, build up a community of support, and help everyone understand the trauma that death brings.

May the fires of death that burn at night light our way.
May the sorrows that weigh us down, dissipate at dawn like mist.
May the morning rain moisten our upturned faces with hope.

  1. "May we become the blessing." Yes.
    Truly a beautiful piece, Mark. It takes my breath away.

    Blessings to you, and thank you. ♥

  2. Marty, thank you. And yes, please feel free to share.
