A picture of grief

03 Jan


As many know, I work in a charity shop. It goes without saying, that we get many very interesting donations coming in needing to be checked for quality and pricing. Just before Christmas, a bag of books came in. As I was checking the books for resale value, this note fell out. It had me choking back the tears. Such heartbreak! To me, it came as a grim reminder that not all who are alone have comfort, that loneliness is very real. Not all are as lucky as I am to have people who care enough to call. It’s a call to reach out to those who are alone and hurting.

    BUT… it is also possible that the book owner wrote out their grief and then went on to heal and be happy. I’ve gone through very dark times, even written it out in poems 9you know one! lol) and then gone on to heal due to the fact I let it go in those words.
