Grief is like a fog, blanketing every aspect of life, seeping into even the smallest of cracks and spaces. Surrounded by grief’s thick, smokey grey clouds, you inch your way through life, blinded and disoriented. There are times when you feel its presence nearing. Rolling in off the shores of pain and loss, you wait for grief to encircle you. But other times you awake engulfed by grief, its weight pressing against you from every side. Even when the days brighten, the fog of grief can linger in the heart’s deepest crevices.
