We have all felt sadness and grief, especially when a relative (ancestor) dies. We feel loss when a friend moves away. We feel changes with the changing of the seasons.
The Earth Ancestors tell us that through time, others have felt this way. It is difficult to say hard things like good-byes for this time and to find words to give bad news. The People have a blessing to help one get through the tough times. The blessing may bring peace over time.
If you need a blessing today, say this one several times to yourself.
