MamaBlogger365 - Sorrow: A Trilogy by Shira Adler, Diva Mama

SORROW has many faces. Sorrow doesnʼt discriminate, nor does it tread lightly. When we speak of sorrow, like a universal code, we know it means trouble; a death, an illness, the loss of a job, betrayal. Sometimes itʼs personal; the loss of self esteem, the onset of depression. Other times itʼs global; think Steve Jobs and the loss of everyoneʼs favorite pioneering tech guru.

In almost every instance we cry when sorrow darkens our doorstep, for the very reason that sorrow makes us sad, and we cry when weʼre sad. I've come to believe the worst sorrow comes when it affects us directly. None of us actually knew Steve Jobs, but Iʼm writing this blog on the computer he invented, today I talked to my daughter on the phone he invented, and before bed tonight my son relaxed using the portable tablet he invented.
