Saturday's Sayings - Companionship in Grief

Saturday's Sayings

Companionship in Grief

What I Have Learned

I`ve learned that you can keep going long after you think you can't.

I`ve learned that learning to forgive takes a lot of practice.

I`ve learned that friends may become strangers, and strangers become friends.

I`ve learned that ignorance isn't an excuse for lack of compassion.

I`ve learned that some people will never, ever, "get it".

I`ve learned that the community of sorrow is the strongest of all.

I`ve learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I`ve learned that your life can be changed in a matter of minutes.

I`ve learned that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you ever see them.

I`ve learned that love isn't measured by the amount of time you have with someone.

~Thank you, Pearl, for sharing this!


Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying our hard hearts.

~Charles Dickens Great Expectations


God is closest to those with broken hearts.

~Jewish Saying


Walk With Me

Walk with me…

Walk in my shoes

for one single day.

Then you’ll see why

I need to pray.

Come live in my home

for a week or two

and then remember

I am just like you.

I didn’t ask for the things I was given

I didn’t choose this road I have taken

Walk a mile with me hand in hand

Then perhaps you will understand.

I’m not really complaining

about the stress in my life,

I know that we all have

some toil and some strife.

But walk with me, when you think

I am wrong, walk with me

and you’ll start to belong.

Embrace my sorrows,

like they are your own,

And then you will know me

And see I have grown.

The journey I take

is different from yours

My life took one of those

unexpected detours,

But this road that I travel

is not really so long,

If the people who watch me

will join in my song.

Listen to my footsteps

and watch how I dance

And then you will know me

and give me a chance.

Take heart and remember

It can happen to you,

who knows where my pathway

will cross over to you?

So speak to me softly

if you can’t understand

Remember I once stood

right there where you stand.

And walk with me gently

when the day is at end.

And then I will know

I can call you my friend.

Thank you, Grieving Mothers!
