“Say not in grief ‘he is no more,’ but live in thankfulness that he was.”
~ Hebrew proverb
Now having Jewish family members, I only recently came to know and appreciate various aspects of the faith and culture. This quote, a Hebrew proverb is the epitome of a thought process that I, for one, wish to aspire to. “…Live in Thankfulness… ,” in this instance for a life lived! when Mom died I was consumed with grief. In retrospect I was self absorbed in that grief. I cannot say that I would not grieve again but hope that I can muster the gratefulness recommended in this quote – “live in thankfulness that she was.”
Pray tell, what do you think?
