    Wait. Journal Post 2. July 16, 2006

    Lost Someone? You Will Change. But Joy Wins.

    When you lose someone the world, your family, your friends and your co-workers may expect you to “heal” sooner than you are able.  They might even expect you to return to them the same person you were before your loss.  If you are suffering a loss, you probably know right now that remaining the same […]
