A good friend and fellow teacher (one of the best) said to me years ago: "there is pain, and there is PAIN." Likewise, there is grief, and there is GRIEF. In support groups, they teach us not to compare our personal sorrow and loss with another's. And I see the wisdom of that. But in my humble opinion, there is no sorrow quite like a mama forced to grieve the loss of her child. (Luke 2:34-35; Matthew 2:16-18).
