Good things come to an end.
This is sad, but the sharing of the grief is part of the goodness somehow. There is something wonderful and special in that—so we don’t have to be afraid of the grief.
The end is coming one way or another and that’s not so good. But the grief is our good response *to* the end. Grief is not the enemy; it is our good response *to* the enemy. And we are blessed when we can share it together.
