On my mind.

Grieving is a necessary passage and a difficult transition to finally letting go of sorrow - it is not a permanent rest stop.

It's so curious: one can resist tears and "behave" very well in the hardest hours of grief. But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window, or one notices that a flower that was a bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed, or a letter slips from a drawer...and everything collapses.

There are things we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go.

  1. Kristina,
    Thinking of you as you mourn the loss of your kitty. When our little dog, Doodle, passed away last December, I was heartbroken. The healing process took months and I still get sad if I think of her. Time seems to be the only remedy for grief.
    Take care.
