As important as it is to grieve when you lose someone it is just as important on how you deal with that person.  There are many, many books and talks about the subject of how to overcome grief but few books and articles teach us how to deal with the loved one who is suffering.

That is how I felt each and every time the words came out of someone’s mouth.  I would give anything to have my husband back, my sister-in-laws, my mother if it means I am a lesser person or my “plan” wasn’t greater.  It was great!  I was happy.  Seriously do you honestly believe that, considering I have had 5 very close family members die in less than 5 years? I honestly think that there are other great things that will come to me, however it doesn’t help to hear that when I am at my deepest point.  Absolutely when the grieving has lessened as we too need hope for a better tomorrow.  I know you have my best interest at heart, but there is a time and place for everything.
