It’s been 7 years since DDSO passed away. His estate was finally closed last month. I received a holiday card from his son and his son’s girlfriend, and that made me really happy.
I was reading the Sunday NY Times today and seemed to gravitate toward the articles about love and loss. Or maybe there were just more of them because of the new year. I find myself less
with other people’s losses.
I have come to learn that – – –
- Everyone’s relationships are different
- Everyone’s loss is different
- Who am I to judge
- I don’t expect people to understand me / my loss, but I would like them to listen when and if I want to share
I can be happy and sad simultaneously
