I’m Like the Economy

A friend of mine texted me today to ask how things have been and it occurred to me that I’m a bit like the economy. I guess I’ve crashed, and every time it looks like there’s an upswing, I crash again even harder…

I hadn’t even realized it until I got the text, but today makes it 8 months since Monica passed.

It is not getting easier.

    The first year is the hardest, everything is the first: the first Holidays alone, the first birthdays, the first everything……it never gets easy but in time it does get easier….After Sean died I read an article that said something that really rang true to me …it said “People say that time heals all wounds, it doesn’t, it just makes them hemorrhage a little less.” You have so much to deal with, not only your own grief but trying to help Kai through all this as well….
    It’s been over 2 1/2 years since Heather lost Sean and it wasn’t until around the 2 year mark that she was able to start moving forward.
    Allow yourself to grieve, just don’t let it overcome you. Know that you are in our prayers and thoughts.

    So sorry, friend. Praying for you in your grief and processing. Wish we could be closer to give you a hug, but know that we are praying for you!
