“But then I remember this means he is not so far away, and we’re not so far from him, and it makes me smile”.
Mary Katharine Hamm lost her husband in 2015. She was pregnant with her second child.
She recently wrote this article I know will resonate with anyone who has lost a loved one.
After reading her story it occurred to me, no 2 personal experiences I have read about grieving are the same.
We who are grieving over a severe loss, walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, enveloped by the coldest, darkest place we’ve ever known. And yet, it seems each of us finds glimmers of light along the way. The smallest speck of light is the brightest because it is the darkest there, illuminating what we would not have seen otherwise.
He is not so far away …
This thought brings a new feeling of comfort.
Heaven may be closer than we think.
