Finding peace in a busy world
Snippets of a conversation I had with a dear friend have been running through my head, so I thought I would share two of the most healing things I have heard:
This tragedy does not negate the joy you experienced leading up to it. This was a great reminder that nothing can take away from all the tiny moments of joy we experienced leading up to Asher's untimely death. It also was a great reminder of just how many wonderful moments we had.
Don't diminish your situation by comparing it to others. It is easy to say to ourselves it would be harder if.....but what you are experiencing has value and needs no comparison to other peoples situations.
I believe both these comments have an array of situations in which they can be applied and might be helpful in sorting through a trial you either are or will be experiencing in the future.
