I had a thought this morning about why am I still here. Why did I get left behind alone. Then my next thought was for my sweet little grandchildren that can't wait to come and visit me and spend time having sleepovers, etc. I think about my daughters that no longer have their dad to ask for advice. I think about my son that is a lost soul and needs encouragement from me. I have realized that I was left behind to do this very important work of loving my family and keeping some sort of normalcy in their shattered lives. As sad and lonely as it is it is still good and I will do my best to take up the slack that my wonderful husband has left for me. How lucky am I to have these sweet young people to love and nurture and mentor? What is your mission? hugs, Shirley

Hi again everyone,my grief therapist (who is quite a hippie like me and very earth spritual, like me) said that she could she me living in the northern part of New Mexico. They have the four seasons, although winter isnt as severe as NY, and the landscape is beautiful, she says. So, i was wondering, if anyone had been to this part of the country? Thank you
I have shared this book with friends who are grieving, those who love someone who is grieving, and with every professional caregiver (chaplains, counselors, psychologists, etc.) I’ve encountered since Dana’s death. I realized that I hadn’t shared this book with the group here yet. Part memoir, part how-to-book... I’ve found her approach incredibly helpful. I hope some of you will...
