· grief

After years of speaking with many people in the throes of grief and shock, one thing seems a common theme. We become quite aware of synchronicities. Things people say, birds singing at a particular time, a tree, a song, a TV show reference -- all these things point to our loved one, to a connection we crave.

Then time passes, and we notice fewer of these occurrences, even though they are still around us. Perhaps you suddenly have a new friend or co-worker who likes the same oddball movies as your loved one. Things change shape, and other items or people will fill the spaces in between. Allow the changes to come and notice what you miss most, you'll find first. And what you DON'T miss - you'll see last.

See, your loved one is with you. You can't escape it; you can only forget to look.
