In great loss, life as we have known it can never be again. The day must come when we leave behind the old and reach for the new.
* Begin a list of things you know you must let go as you become aware of them.
* What do you feel about the “tomorrows” to come–dread, fear, wonder, hope, anticipation, anxiety, trust, despair, confidence, apathy, belief . . .?
* Pray for and look toward the day you once again say “yes” to life.
To reach for our tomorrows is to leave the familiar and dare to adventure into life not yet formed, holding tightly to the hand that has led us thus far.
