Grief is......

-Grief is laughing with your children and wishing for the absent one to make the circle complete.
-Grief is crying in your car at stoplights.
-Some days grief makes you brutally honest; other days,grief muzzles you.
-Grief reconstructs your heart.
-Grief is sadness, hope, smiles and tears - rolled tightly like a snowball.
-Grief makes you search past the stars and the moon for Heaven.
-Grief strips you of everything you were pretending to be.
-Grief gives you new priorities.
-Grief opens hidden treasures from deep within your soul.
-Grief allows you to empathize more deeply with others who ache.
-Grief makes you unapologetically bold.
-Grief is a daily companion, best dealt with by admitting you do walk with it, even after all these years.
-Grief is the price of love; grief is a gift.

I saw this on a message board I post on, and wanted to share. How true....

Thank you for sharing. All of it is so true. If I could count the amoutn of tears I have lost at stop lights I would fill an ocean. I've become so honest both in myself and in what I say to others. This really expresses it so well.
