It may seem there are tears all around you today. Remember the compassion and concern you have received in the last year. Now it’s time for you to give back some of that which you received. Sometimes a hug, and a simple comment of “It’s going to be ok” is all that someone needs to hear. If you are the one with the tears, remember to look beyond that which is on your plate and see the buffet before you. While one door may have closed, there is a bounty of blessings on your table to be shared.
Sometimes one door closes behind us in order for others to be opened before us. You’ve learned all you can from the past and it’s time to move on. So whither you’re the one with the tears, or the one giving comfort, take time to look at the blessings you do have in your life and what you have to give or what you receive from those around you. You may notice that things aren’t as bad as you think. And while you can take time to grieve, don’t wallow in self pity and create a deeper chasm of despair than there needs to be.
