The Weight of Grief
As I trudged along the mountainside trail early this morning, rain mixing with the tears on my face, I felt the weight of grief sitting on my shoulders, and in my heart. With each step, my legs felt as if they were carrying the load of a thousand pounds. I had to look hard for gratitude and glimpsed it in the knowing that I will be surrounded by so many others this afternoon, all of us sharing our love and support in the sorrow of missing our beautiful Kelly.
