In the wake of loss there’s something comforting about flowers …. though I couldn’t say for sure what it is. It’s hard to look at a beautiful flower or floral arrangement and not feel something … appreciation for their beauty and acknowledgment of the miracle of life. And I think that’s what a floral gesture of sympathy is meant to do: help us remember that as long as we can feel something there’s hope, and where there’s hope, there’s life.
Thank you dear friend, for the gentle reminder and for helping me bear my grief.
