That's such a beautiful quote, I wish it didn't take so much time to heal after a loss, but it sure does. I wish you all the best. :)

Good advice, but hard to do sometimes.

Good words to hang onto when it all seems like way too much.

These words helped me heal as I remembered so many wonderful things about our life together.

"tears" and roses...love and loss...and though I love Dr. Seuss' message...I like that you show us we can cry because it is over AND smile because it happened...singly and together. ♥

I posted a comment that got "lost".

I had said that "tears" and roses go together, and while I like this Seuss quote, I believe that we can cry because it is over and smile because it happened...together and separately...one needn't be the only way to work through grief. Sometimes what makes us smile because it happened can also make us cry from happiness. ♥

I must remember this quote to share with my little granddaughter who always cries when she must go home. I know the quote has special meaning for you, Snap - wishing you many smiles.

Beautiful rose and an equally beautiful quote.

Grieving takes its own time. Don't try to rush it. It's all part of the process of living.

I want to shout, "YES!" with this quote. And yet, there is a bittersweetness behind it as well. Tear drops on roses - I hope they are not yours but if they are that it was a cleansing experience. There does seem to be no end to the tears though, or at least it is for me. Just periods in between the cleansing. Much, much love to you, Snap.

Dr. Seuss quotes are always simple but insiring.
