Celebrating someone’s life is a great reason to gather. It’s a great reason to take the time, travel the distance, and hug someone you haven’t seen in what feels like ages.
Part of what makes grief so potent is that it’s often done alone. This doesn’t have to be the case, though.
Grieving together is always better and it can even be beautiful.
My grandmother’s passing is a reminder of how short our lives really are and yet how full they can be when lived well.
Seeing my family, my friends, and some of the folks that I love the most made me smile endlessly.
What a good reason to gather.
