Everybody Hurts

To some degree,

Everybody hurts.

For that, I am sorry.

I'm sorry for whatever pain you are experiencing.

My heart goes out to you for whatever it is that hurts you,

That causes you to lose sleep.

For whatever it is you can't seem to shake,

Or seems unfair,

Or unjust.

Is the Grief Monster your shadow, too?

Please know, that as you walk through your day,

I feel for the things that turn and sting you.

The things that could have,

And should have been.

But sadly, are not.

I often wonder what your struggles are,

What your pain is,

How you cope,

And continue on.

Above all,

And, even though I don't know,

I want you to know,

I care about you,

As you have shown you care about us!


  1. Love YOU and your beautifully compassionate heart!

  2. I swear I hadn't read your blog when I just put up my post. We seem to be having the same type of day/week/month/year/years/life.

  3. Jen, I am sorry I haven't been in touch. Something sent me here today. I sometimes get so wrapped up in myself and my own grief that I can't truly grasp what is going on in others lives. I try but sometimes all I can focus in on my own grief. Then I see your post, with your ongoing grief reaching out to others. Thank you and praying for you all.
