No matter how huge your loss, as long as you remain engaged with your life, the best days of your life may still be ahead of you.Don't misunderstand me: the pain of your loss will remain with you for the rest of your life. But great joy will be there right beside it.Deep sorrow and deep joy can exist within you, side by side. At every moment. And it's not confusing. And it's not a conflict."
