Greetings as I begin this project

Welcome to Grief – Going Through Grief.

I am offering this material in order to share some things that have been helpful to me as I have traveled the journey through loss and grief.

I think “through” is a key word here, because, as far as I know, the only way to get to the other side of grief is to go through it.  As desperately as I might try to somehow squeeze my way around, over, or under my grief, attempts to do that usually only prolong and intensify the pain.

There’s a quote by Winston Churchill that I love: “If you’re going through hell, keep going.” I think this advice applies to grief in a very literal way. I hope something here will be helpful for you – or for someone you know and care about, who might be going through the process of grief.

Blessings along the way.
