“Grief is not a disorder, a disease or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve.” ~ E. Grollman (Straight talk about death for teenagers)
It’s been six weeks since my mother passed away.
I find myself looking up several times a day, expecting her to be there. Then I remember…
She’s not here.
And, although I know that she is (and always will be) with me in spirit, I am never going to see her again.
The grief that has been my constant companion since she transitioned, is tricky and unpredictable.
Sometimes, it seems like the pain that I can not describe is trying to kill me from the inside out. Today, however, there has been no measurable increase or decrease. Its just kind of hanging out around the edge of my perception and allowing me to feel something other than sad, lonely and anxious.
For that, I am grateful.
I love you. Be Blessed.
