Adversity Embraced

“Someone once asked me how I hold my head up so high after all I’ve been through. I said, it’s because no matter what, I am a survivor. Not a victim.” – Patricia Buckley

“What ever hardships I have gone through, I am grateful for because they have weakened my ego and need to be in control; but have strengthened my faith in God and deepened my compassion for the bereaved.” ~ Sue Rosenbloom

“The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same. Nor would you want to.” – Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and David Kessler
