On Grief and Love


I don't know if you have seen Wandavision yet on Disney Plus? It's a tv show and one of the more recent installments in the Marvel Comic Universe. If you haven't, I think you should. 

Here's the deal, I am not a Marvel person. I've only seen a few of the movies but M convinced me to watch it and I'm glad I did. The entire plot centers around grief and it is SO GOOD. Seriously. It's so good. 

I don't want to spoil anything if you haven't watched it, but there's a point when the main character (Wanda) is dealing with the fact that her husband/soul mate is dying and he said this quote. 

At first when I heard it, it didn't register. But then I thought about it more and more and it completely rocked me. I'm no stranger to grief...especially grief over someone I so dearly loved. So, I decided to make a simple quote graphic while doodling on my iPad. It reminds me that grief and love are entwined. They never truly go away...even when a person has. Sometimes grief is like a sucker-punch and other times it's a sweet memory. But in every way that grief resurfaces, it's continued proof that love endures and perseveres. 


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
