Do you miss your grief?

When David died I wanted my pain to subside. It was unendurable. Now after almost 13 years the pain is still extreme but much less frequent. I actually cherish the pain when it returns as it reconnects me with my precious son. Therefore I recommend that you cherish your grief.

Still Waiting

I continue to wait for David to come up the driveway admiring the flowers. I wait for him to hug me. I wait for him in the kitchen to enjoy my cooking. I envision him all over the house. I see him in the kitchen talking to me while I am cooking. I see him in the family room sitting on the couch and watching his favorite movie with us. I often see him fixing what needed to be fixed and painting the walls or ceilings. He is everywhere and yet the house is void, cold and empty.
