Surviving Year Two: Week 42

The Flowering Continues

This is Week 42 of my Surviving Year Two Grief Project. Details about all my Grief Projects, as well as Grief Resources can be found here

It's been two weeks since my Healing Grief - Flowering Ritual.  Part of the ritual was planting seeds into a planter box my husband made from scavenged wood. Along with good energy and deep wishes, some of my husband's ashes were also mixed in to the soil. This week, the seeds we planted began doing what seeds do — they have started to sprout!

I love living symbols like these little sprouts. They are a reminder to all of us who were present in the sacred circle that the ritual we created together keeps going, even after we have gone back to our lives. My opening, flowering heart feels a bit like these little sprouts — tender and new, yet fiercely strong and ready to grow.

Thanks for witnessing me. See you next week.
