No Storm Lasts Forever
Dr. Joanne Cacciatore 
There is a saying: No storm lasts forever. While grief over the death of our loved one does indeed, endure forever - or at least as long as we love and miss them, the raw, searing pain of grief--that which takes your breath and brings you to your knees--ebbs and flows over time. Eventually, moments of peace do come. Eventually we do find joy again. Our priorities are clearer. We know, more deeply, who we wish to be and who we wish not to be. We appreciate and cherish the lives of our loved ones more, and because we've tasted the most bitter, the sweet-when it comes-is even sweeter. Still, the grief remains in the stillness between words, between peace, between moments of connection with others, between the sunrise and sunset. This is the way of eternal love.
