We are created by God with the ability and urge to cry when our emotions move us, so shedding tears must be an important part of being a human being - a person composed of a body and a soul made in the image and likeness of God.
People are us how we're doing. How are we supposed to answer that one? "I'm fine," is a typical response, even though that might be the opposite of how we feel.
Grief is exhausting. Missing someone can be incredibly draining. Everything seems like a solo climb of Mount Everest.
When we get hit by loss, our entire being feels the shock. We can feel like we're somehow disappearing, like shadows in the night.
Some losses change everything. We're not the same people we used to be. How could we be?
