  1. So very sorry for your loss.

    Just eat one good meal a day. Don’t let yourself get to hungry, angry, lonely or tired. Let every other expectation go. If you haven’t done so yet, work on the taxes. That’s it.

    Do only the things you need to maintain life. Let your friends and family help you. If anyone says, is there anything I can do, give them a laundry basket and let them go to it.

    For the next few months, your emotions will be a roller coaster. just ride it and know that things will settle – Eventually.

    God bless

    Be gentle with yourself. It will get better eventually. I know it sounds trite and easy for me to say, and it is, but it’s also true. Thank goodness you have such a loving support system. Let them support you. *Hugs*.

  3. Thanks for being open and honest about what’s going on with your grief process! I wish I could give you a huge hug but for now this will have to suffice! {{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}

  4. First, I hope you can feel the big hug that is coming at you through your monitor. Second, lossing a parent is one of the most difficult things ever. I know this because I lost my dad 36 years ago. Everyone grieves in their own way and in their own time. Whatever way works for you is the best way for you. It sounds like you are working through the process and it is a process. Take baby steps. You don’t need to be in a hurry. It is a huge loss and it will take you time to work through it. You will have good days and you will have bad days and it’s all okay. I will keep you in my prayers. Love and hugs!!

    I love you, T. You are one of the most real people I know…and my heart breaks for your pain. But I think everything you said is true. Giving yourself some slack. Doing what needs to get done to keep the house and kids going, making time to do something for you – be it going for a walk for fresh air, doing something fun with the kids so you can see their joy at the simple things in life (there is nothing like watching your kids be silly and laugh when your heart feels like it has exploded), play that extra level of Candy Crush (or whatever it’s called:), or just letting Dave hold you and let you cry when you need to (which is hugely therapeutic in it’s own right for me…well not letting Dave hold me, because that would be weird). But not putting a whole lot of effort into those things because there will continue to be days and weeks where getting out of bed is an accomplishment. And on those days, you must acknowledge your limitations. You have so much love coming at you even though you may feel isolated. Thank you for sharing with us.

    Love and prayers and infinite hugs coming your way.

  6. first off {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} i’m praying for you friend. you are so strong, i admire you. not in a have-it-all-together kinda way, but in a way you can step back and make honest evaulations of how you’re coping and adjust as needed.

  7. It is so easy to give those we love peace and grace and so hard to do the same for ourselves. I love you Thea and uninstall Candy Saga, stat : ).
