The first lesson of grief

A friend died. She was past 100. She was a friend, but not a close friend. I still felt sad.

As I thought about my friend’s death, I remembered my mother’s death.

In her book She Matters: A Life in Friendships, Susanna Sonnenberg writes that the first real lesson about grief is “its disorganizing confusions, its inescapable solitude.”

I remember those confusions and that feeling of solitude. Since I have experienced that grief myself, I understand when others are grieving and I can try to comfort them.
