  1. Actually, Jill, I thought that was a perfect graphic…a very simple and tender way to illustrate a very complicated emotion. I think your blog captures something very important – how it’s the simple, every day, “normal” stuff that sometimes tears at your heart the most, in grieving. I lost my brother a few years back, so it’s not the same as what you’re going through, but what’s been true is that you find a new normal. And sometimes, those everyday things will actually bring a smile and a memory that feels warm instead of just painful. I’m wishing for those moments for you…

    • Thanks, Gigi. One thing I’ve learned is that grief is grief and while our losses are different, we all have to work through it. Of course, losing a husband entails a lot of different issues so it is more work at times. People tell me about people they’ve lost and I think, “oh, that’s worse than me” but really this isn’t a competition so I try to avoid thinking that way.
