Grieving with a Friend

Today I received horrible news that a friend I met in blog-land lost their twins - at almost 7 months. I know that no words can express the pain and sorrow they are feeling. I just wanted to dedicate this post to them and let them know they are in my thoughts and prayers. This was a real wake up call for me that nothing is certain about this process. In the spirit of grieving, moving on and trying again, I thought this quote was appropriate from my favorite poet/writer:

Joy and sorrow are inseparable. . . together they come and when one sits alone with you . . remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.
Khalil Gibran

  2. I can't begin to imagine how they must feel, that is just devastating news. To get so far and have this happen is just shattering. I can't think of a single thing to say or do that would make any difference, but our thoughts, wishes and prayers are with them during this sad time.
