We Did It

Outside of the funerals, personally finding these last two days the most difficult this year.  Feeling fragile all weekend.  Walking that thin line between holding it together and falling apart.  Phone calls, emails, and time spent with loving family bringing much appreciated support. Combined with deep breathing, some laughter, meditation, and numerous heartfelt hugs.  Taking time to send love to others experiencing a difficult time as well.  Collectively contributing to a Christmas that was as good as it could be under the circumstances. Myself, my husband, our daughters, and son-in-laws proudly embracing the expression, "We did it."

Hi there, i have no idea who you or your family are, but i came across your blog some time ago, actually by mistake, and have been reading your entries ever since. i must say they are very though provoking, and i may even say inspriring. It seems that in spite of immense loss your family stays grounded, strong and most importantly...together. I hope the new year brings you much deserved joy and peace, and many new beginnings for you and your family.
Take care. I look forward to reading more.
