This vegetarian no crust quiche recipe is great ifyou are looking eat lighter.This week I’ve had a few friends casually talk to me about dealing with grief. . . or rather dealing with people who are dealing with grief. I’m alwayscareful about what I say, because even though I have been through it and thenthrough it some more, I don’t want to say the wrong things. But I feel like itwould be almost negligent for me to say nothing.The question beneath their casual talk is this: What do you do for someone wholost someone or is currently in the process of losing someone? The people whohave talked to me recently are talking about THE BIG losses. Children.Spouses. The kinds of loses that are soul crushing. And I know that soundsdramatic, but when you are in it, that is exactly how it feels. Like your soulis crushed and you will never quite be the same.And you won’t.I tend to believe that the universe talks to you. Sends people your way whoyou need to learn something from. And maybe I’m taking it a step too far, butI feel like if I can possibly help one person by writing about this (even ifit is paired with a crustless vegetable quiche recipe . . . . maybe especiallyif it is paired with a crustless vegetable quiche recipe) than I should write.So this is my advice.Bear witness.And this isn’t actually my advice. This is the advice from my old therapistwho got me through the death of my mom, through Elliot’s death, and theintensely difficult pregnancies that followed. She said that there is nothingyou can actually do to help someone who is grieving. There are no cards thatwill make them feel better. No plants. No meals. Those things are wonderful,don’t get me wrong. But they won’t actually fix anything.The greatest gift you can do for someone who is grieving is: Bear witness.I think that can mean so many things. It can look like so many differentthings. But I think what it boils down to is allowing the person who isgrieving to feel however they are going to feel in whatever moment they aregoing to feel it for as long as they are going to feel it while letting themknow you love them and passing no judgement.I am going to be brutally honest.After Elliot died, there were people who did this beautifully. There werepeople who let us be exactly where we were at. Over and over and over. Andthere were people, some of the very people we thought would be there for us,who did the exact opposite. And that sucked.You can’t make it better. Please don’t try. Bear witness.And remember that the thickest part of the grief comes later. It comes six,nine months down the road. Maybe even years later for some people. It doesn’tmean they aren’t moving on. Grief is a debt that has to be paid (another greatline from my great therapist) and people have to be allowed to pay it in theirown time.That’s it.Woah. Super heavy for a brunch recipe, aye?Thank you for forgiving me all this talk of grief, friends. It’s a huge pieceof who I am and I don’t suspect this will be my last post like this.
