Connections Care Note

 

Where did the time go? As we grieve, we dial up a series of reflections like that. Yet, there is no ready answer to the question about where the time went! Or so it would seem…
 
Reflect on this: Add a little more time to share with one whose life is now passed and we realize that more time wasn’t what made things so good in the first place. More time didn’t make a good day better. More time didn’t make what we had what it was. So what where did the time go? How do we handle the fact that every memory worth savoring reminds us that time well spent begs for more? We want more times like that!
 
In our grief, time is what we now have. Deep down we know that honoring that person isn’t about adding to the time we had with them. No. It’s about honoring the time that was, in the time we are in now.
 
THAT is where the time has gone! Unnoticed, yesterday passed into today, making our grief so strong. We’re overwhelmed with yesterday’s ‘time’ as it touches the present moment – that’s grief! And we honor the time that was by making this time worthwhile.
 
The answer to where the time went? It’s here! 
 

That’s where it went. It’s yesterday’s gift to you as you grieve. Come join one of our bereavement group meetings and let’s talk about the times – the time that was and the time that is.
