Grief and the Broken Body By Meghan E. MacNamara
What I care about are the relationships and activities that feed my resilience, stretch my gratitude and help me love harder in the time I have left. I feel myself edging toward an end almost daily. I hold onto what feels right, deep, and solid. And still none of this dampens the flame of grief or makes my losses easier to cope with. It only helps me rise up from it - a little more stooped each time.
