This post should sound familiar- well, atleast it is if you have been reading my blog for all these long years! I posted one just like it in November of 2013 after hearing from so many people how they really don’t jive on the Fall like I do…
Sometimes, though fall makes people sad. Literally it does. I know several people in my life who get the SAD disorder (Seasonal Affective Disorder), where they get a bit depressed by the fall season. My work friend has a “happy light” (link just shows you an example) to make the seasonal change a bit easier.
I understand that many struggle with sadness at this time of year particularly — remembering their losses most recent or from long ago… missing loved ones that can’t be with us in the upcoming season of celebrations.
So it is with that reflection that I will share that I have reflected upon, and have found much comfort in this poem/prayer that a good friend shared with me a while ago, but that Ioved. Perhaps it may be of some comfort to others as well.
