New life

“Grief is in two parts. The first is loss. The second is the remaking of life.” – Anne Roiphe

Thankfully, with the birth of a new grandchild, I can take this wise comment literally. Although it is hard, after grief it is important to remember to seek out moments of joy, to drink them up. Take moments to be with new life – whether it is a new baby or a new garden. Be conscious of turning your face towards the sun.
