I've already decided which post I will be submitting to Mel's creme de la creme for 2011, and was going to post that here today, but while that may be my favorite post from this year, to get my All Time Favorite Post I have to go back - way back, to a post titled On Falling.
This post is my favorite because it brings me spiritually and creatively back to a place where I felt so in tune with my emotions. It highlights what a gift grief can be. Yes, you read that right - a gift - because grief provides you with a deeper, richer view of the world. It helps you to see meanings that you may have overlooked before loss. It proves that even in the pain, there is still so much beauty to be found. Beauty that encourages you to keep trying. To keep going.
Many of you have already read the post. Some of you have not. Give it a read and let me know what you think, then be sure to hop over to Four of a Kind and submit your own favorite.
