The Strongest Women Have A Loved One In Heaven.

 

We all know what heartbreak feels like. The pain of loss is something that is intimately connected with the human condition. Everyone has their own stories of lost love, of painful memories and tearful nights alone. 

But no knife cuts deeper than that of death. When we lose the ones we love to the currents of time and they slip past the veil into the great beyond, we feel a pain unlike any other on this earth. We’ve lost them – at least until we join them again. But they’re no longer here to share life with us. We can no longer look into their eyes, no longer see them looking back at us with love and warmth and recognition. It’s a soul-crushing, heart-wrenching pain beyond belief. 

So, this is for the women who’ve lost someone. This is for the women who have seen their time with their loved ones run out, who have endured loss and pain like no other. This is for all of the incredible, inspiring people who have had their worlds shattered and flipped upside down and are still picking up the pieces today. You’re stronger than you know.

You’ve seen the worst of life, and you’re still managing to carry on. Even when it doesn’t feel like you are, you’re here. You’re surviving. You’re enduring. And that’s inspiring. 

You know how it feels to have spoken to someone for the last time and have them slip away. You know how it feels to remember the last words they ever spoke to you.

You’re strong. Even if it doesn’t feel like you are, even if it feels like you’re not coping, I promise you that you are. You’re brave, and you’re strong, and you’re inspirational. 

This is for those of us who live on. This is for the survivors. The bent, the broken, the suffering. The ones who were left behind. The ones who cry and sometimes wish that we were up there with them.

Nothing lasts. All things have to change eventually. In time, all things come to pass. We might be left behind for now, but it won’t be that way forever. 

So, we go on. We keep struggling. We keep surviving. We fight to live our lives, and live them well. Nothing and no one can ever replace those we’ve lost. When the sun sets, no candle can ever compare. When we lose the ones we love, it feels like there’s nothing but absence and emptiness left for us in their place.

But still, we go on. We do it not because living is easy, but because we know that living our lives well is what our lost loved ones would have wanted. We know they’re looking down on us and smiling, so we live our lives as best we can in the knowledge that we’ll get to see them again someday. 

Life can and will be satisfying and fulfilling, even without the ones we’ve lost. It will never be the same, but it is always worth seeing through to the end.

    It’s important to know how much you and your presence means to others, your smile to a stranger might make his/her day, you smile might be an inspiration to the other to do something great.never for one second feel that you have no importance. On the contrary you can bring out the very best in someone. Just smile and know you have a purpose every single day..

    I thank God for helping me each day. My children keep our memories alive by talking and remembering. Telling stories to the ones that did not get to know Grandpa showing them things he loved to do and enjoy. I tell them he is just waiting for us in a better place.
