HUG Corner: Thought for the Week - 8/27

Healing After Loss (Martha Whitmore Hickman)

 A new day rose upon me. It was as if another sun had risen in the sky; the heavens were indescribably brighter, and the earth fairer; and that day has gone on brightening to the present hour. 

- Orville Dewey

When we are bogged down in heavy grief, can we believe such a day will ever come? A person recovering from a serious illness said, "It's almost worth having been sick, because I appreciate all over again how wonderful it is to be well."

It doesn't happen for a while. But if we are blessed with good friends and a faith that can help us through the bad times, then a time will come when we reawaken to the beauty of life around us as to a new June morning - to a world of incredible beauty and promise.

If you can't feel this way yet, stay with your grief. But keep the promise in mind that one day, having survived the worst, you will encounter the best, and probably with new appreciation because of what you have been through.

I will hold before myself the promise of a renewed and joyful life.
