My friend Lois is mourning her brother and like everyone some days are harder than others. She sent me this link to a blog post that she likes. A friend sent it to her, Lois sent it to me, I’m sharing it here.
I will tell you the one platitude I hated was “you wouldn’t have wanted Dave to still be suffering.” Well, maybe I did. Intellectually perhaps not but emotionally, I would have given anything to have had him still here in any state.
Anyway, I think she’s on to something though most of us do indeed have to go to work and buy groceries. I would add that it’s also ok to begin to live your life again.
