I mean really, isn’t this cloud gorgeous? 😍To me it looks like a dove or a phoenix rising. Do you see it too?
I was reading a discussion recently where some people said they didn’t believe in signs from their lost loved ones. At first, it made me sad because I don’t have memories to think back on but I have been comforted greatly by spiritual symbols.
If those experiences weren’t “real”, I wondered if that meant I imagined the connection I felt to my mom all those times. My husband sweetly told me that wasn’t true and I realized I was comparing my grief journey to someone else’s.
Even though I advocate for grief and loss everyday, I still need to remind myself of what I tell you all the time: That the opinion of others doesn’t take away from the meaning of my experience nor should my beliefs dictate their grieving process either. Loss is a deeply personal thing and there is room for all of us to heal in our own way. 💛
