Healing After Loss (Martha Whitmore Hickman)

"When your burden is heaviest, you can always lighten a little some other burden. At the times when you cannot see God, there is still open to you this sacred possibility to show God; for it is the love and kindness of human hearts through which the divine reality comes home to men, whether they name it or not, let this thought, then, stay with you: there may be times when you cannot find help, but there is no time when you cannot give help."

-George S. Merriam

Often, especially in first grief, we don't have the will or energy to do anything much, for ourselves or for anyone else. But as we begin to get better, we can give ourselves a welcome break from our preoccupying sadness by doing something for another. It expresses the hope that we are not always going to be stuck in this valley of sadness. Not to mention that such a move on our part can be reassuring and useful to someone else!

It is amazing the way depression lifts when we are able to move out of our own concerns and do something for someone else.
