I am not sure if my message will post as I have just newly joined. However in anticipation of you reading this, thank you so much for your words, like water in the desert for me. I lost my life partner and soul mate July 2/2017. I goggled grief and here I am. Your blog is the first story I have read (so far)…….Christmas I am thinking is not such a big deal, other celebrations will be I know. This grief thing is like being on a roller coaster, sometimes its tolerable and known triggers under control ,other times I swear the wheels ( or cable) is coming off and Ive hit the wall….or a water balloon that is filling up an up and up…then splat!…meltdown time.
I cry ,I smile, I dont sleep enough, I do what other people think is ’’normal", I eat too much, I dont eat enough, I am angry, I miss him, I am accepting, I am tearful, my bones ache, I bought lipstick, I bought too much online, I just clicked. Last month I didnt care much, this month I do……
Thank you Kelly Lyn!……for putting words to my thoughts.
I wish you every happiness and joy for your future wherever you are. Love and light to your family.
Someday...we'll be together in a new and better way.Love never dies.
...Because I believe with all my heart and soul that grief and supporting one another through sorrowful times are a basic human need. For just as water and food sustains our physical body so too, do we need compassion,kindness and love for our emotional needs or we wither and die.
