Heidi found this little pink slip of paper taped to my mom's window just in front of her sink when we went to her house the other day.  On it were words I'm sure she used for comfort when her beloved husband died last summer.  Now that she is gone, I find comfort in knowing just how natural it is to grieve.

I miss my mom.

Grieving is as natural as
          crying when you are hurt,
          sleeping when you are tired,
          eating when you are hungry,
          or sneezing when your nose itches.
It's nature's way of healing a 

          broken heart.
