I grieve

For a dear friend in mourning…I posted this quote for her a while back. Why is it that we are doomed to sorrow? I think it’s because we love.

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless–it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.” -C.S. Lewis

The bridge of this song is amazing. Makes me cry every time.

    I know this quote. It’s so profound – it’s so not an option to not give you heart in spite of the heartache too. I wish your friend healing.
