A Work of Art

28 Apr

From an email I wrote today:

I really think I will be grieving for the rest of my life.  It’s just the “how” that will change.  It’s interesting to see how this has changed me as a person.  As strange as it may sound, I am not sorry.  I sort of like who I am becoming.  I feel like a fancy glass vase or something…  a little more fragile than before, and definitely put through the fire to get here, but prettier for it all… Does that make sense?

    I like the way you’ve described it, H. It absolutely makes sense to me.

    It makes sense too. It does change you. Although I am not feeling the prettier for it yet..

    good for you.

    (wish I felt pretty. I feel a bit like I’ve been put in the fire and then forgotten there.)

    It not only makes sense but I love that you see it this way. So many would simply bemoan the turn that fate has thrown their way and it takes a strong will and heart to get through it. It’s about looking at what we have and being happy instead of looking for the bad. Life will never be all happy and nicey nice. Better you appreciate what you have.

    So proud to know you H!
