My life-experiences affirm the truth of what Chris is saying. Here’s an excerpt from his post:
“…Loss is inevitable. And it hurts. Frightens us too. Loss is a reminder of how vulnerable we are, how much we’re not in control after all. Loss of any kind can send us spinning, craving firm footing again.
When we do so, it’s not hard to bury ourselves in work or anything else that might distract us, numb us, and help us avoid the pain.
But loss is an invitation. There’s grace in it, hidden beneath the pain. Through loss we can come to greater clarity about what really matters in life…”
