We are saddened when our loved ones pass.

The grief runs deep.

We are saddened that they miss out on the milestones, births, and celebrations.

The grief comes in waves.

But do our passed loved ones really miss out on those milestones?

Personally, I don’t believe that they are fully gone. I believe that they are in the ether, in the air that surrounds and envelops my being.

I realized that, in actuality, I am saddened by not being able to share those experiences with them in the human, physical world.
