Life is changed but still goes on

I had a long conversation with a friend today whose husband died two years ago. She confided that much of what she heard from others about grief was well intentioned but rarely helpful. The one thing she did experience is that though she misses him each day life did go on but very differently. There were times when she thought the heavy sadness would never go away but there have been moments of joy, laughter and even new accomplishments. She will never stop missing him ,but has come to the realization that if she knew how hard it would be she still would choose to love him all over again. She also said that there are moments when long conversations with him help her in so many ways. In essence she said you don’t get over it but you learn that he was a gift, and above all he would want me to not be forever immobilized by the loss.
