The measure of our grief is a valiant testimony to our capacity to love. To feel, live, and love fully anyway — in the face of this sorrow — is to shape a life worthy of the greatest love we have cherished, and the big, tender heart of the world. Grateful Living can help remind us that it is precisely those things we appreciate and treasure most which open us to experience grief and loss, and to hold our hearts open for the gifts that await our discovery.
May this curated collection of poetry, stories, videos, audio, and more bring you comfort and support for the journey.
