Into each one’s life some grief is felt. No one is free of the tortured heart crushing agony that accompanies the death of a loved one. It’s what we do with that tormented pain that determines who we are. Moving forward with life is so much more difficult than shutting down and existing in the darkened abyss. Chellie runs a dog training center in Northeastern Vermont. She does several different types of classes from simple obedience to Service dogs up to Search and Rescue dogs. She is a Veterinarian as well and has a long list of clients waiting for an opening in her schedule. Chellie often adds another class when enough are on the waiting list. She throws herself into this life since it’s her only joy. Colleen owns a pub. She still runs it alone since losing her husband years ago. She continues on, knowing that’s what he would want her to do. Her path was not complete yet and she still had things to do. Maggie is the most recent member of the club nobody wants to be in. She is very deeply stuck in darkness. She doesn't want help, refuses it at every turn. What will it take to allow the light back into her life? For all those who have lost the ones they loved. May you have the strength to continue on.
