If you have ever been swamped by the waves, here is one person’s reply as to how to manage them. In the case of a parent who has lost a child, those waves are a thousand feet tall, and you think at first, that you won’t ever survive. You are drowning in a frigid black turbulent sea with nothing to cling to. As this man observes, the waves do diminish somewhat, but the ocean never turns into a calm lake. There are always waves on the horizon, waiting to swamp you at the most unlooked for moments. All we can do is hang on knowing they will pass. Until the next one.
Thank you for sharing. It gives me hope that it will eventually become more tolerable.
Yes. We all have such a long road to walk. Knowing we are not alone on this journey is at once comforting and disheartening that so many of us are traveling together. Peace.
