Saturday's Sayings - Recovering from Loss???

Saturday's Sayings

Recovering from Loss???

Recovering from loss?

I'm not sure anyone can be expected to recover from the death of their child; considering the value of what was lost and the consequences of that loss.

I think recovery is a misleading and empty expectation.

We recover from broken limbs and bad illnesses.

This type of loss goes into the category of catastrophic. ...Catastrophic loss by definition precludes recovery. It will either transform us or destroy us, but it will never leave us the same.

There is no going back to the past.

The future will..and must include the pain of the past with it.

Sorrow never entirely leaves the soul of a parent who endures the death of a child.

If anything, it takes us to a deeper place in which we have the opportunity to come face to face with... the soul.
