A Beautiful Reunion
Updated: Jun 27
I think back on where I was a year ago today, shortly after losing my brother. It was a dark place to be, wondering if the sadness ever goes away.
Wondering if I’ll ever just be happy again.
What I’ve learned slowly is that you can still live a very beautiful life with both of those feelings.
“What feels like your loss, is actually a beautiful reunion for someone else.”
A quote I read and didn’t understand at the time... but I’m slowly starting to recognize the beauty in it now.
I painted, collaged and journaled about it this morning.
I found myself writing “enjoy this next adventure” and “thank you for the memories.” As I read through his obituary once more, I found myself drawn to the “preceded in death by” section, and it actually brought a slight smile to my face.
How wonderful I thought, our mom, grandparents and a few friends must be so incredibly happy to see him again.
What a beautiful reunion that must be.
