Victory Over Grief

By Peter Darcy | On Mar 28, 2016 | No Comments | In Beauty

When I lost Stormy, I never destroyed the card [predicting our marriage] in anger. I have no anger. I have never raged at man or God about what happened. Sorrow is my legacy from that terrible day, and as well a humbling awareness of my inadequacies, which are beyond counting.

To keep the sorrow from overwhelming me, I remain focused on the beauty of this world, which is everywhere to be seen in rich variety, from the smallest wildflowers and the iridescent hummingbird that feeds on them to the night sky diamonded with fiery stars.
