Shattered Heart

Matthew 5:4 – Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. (NIV)

I watched as if it were rolling in slow motion — or it could have been me moving in slow motion. I stretched my hand forward as it rolled to the floor — shattering. My heart skipped a beat. My favourite coffee mug lay in pieces on the floor.

Then, I realized that it was my heart that was shattered and not just the coffee cup that I didn't know how to pick up. I was so raw with emotion, since my mum had passed away just days before, that I just stared at the broken pieces on the floor.
