The Day After Easter

It rained. On new beginnings. So they may flourish into beautiful things. A certain peace was felt from within. The fragrance of an Easter lily lingered in the air. A few colored eggs remained in a basket on the kitchen table. Along with sweet memories of laughter and chocolate bunnies. And it seemed as if life was renewed once again. It was possible to start over–to have a second chance. To resurrect lost dreams.

On Loss

When we lose something precious to us or someone we love, we fear it may happen again, and inevitably, it does. Life is full of loss, but it’s also full of hope and possibilities to experience and create something new and to love again.

When we focus on what we have, what is truly important, our hearts fill with gratitude. We even begin to feel grateful that we were blessed at one time with the things and people we miss. They made our days richer and more meaningful and were in our life for a reason, even if just for a season. Beautiful memories live on in our hearts.

And we move forward with acceptance and renewed hope.
