Accepting change

There is a mysterious, yet perfect rhythm to life.
Change is natural part of our dance with it.
Sometimes the changes can be difficult ones;
the loss of a loved one, a failed marriage, illness. 
At such moments, we are reminded how fragile life is
and that there is no immunity to sorrow.

Even those times when our hearts shatter 
  like pieces of fragmented glass,
will gift us with strength, faith, and endurance.

Grief is the vehicle that transports us
into the promise of tomorrow.
When we descend to the bottom of sorrow,
we will rise with a softer rim around our hearts
and a deeper appreciation for life.
