Today is one year to the day that my Stepmother died.
I will be attending my Grandmother's wake tonight.

I am heavy with sadness, clouded by grief, and I am feeling a thousand emotions rushing at me all at once; I am revisiting the sudden, shocking demise of my Stepmom, all while I am awash in relief that my Gram's journey is over, her pain and suffering on this Earth gone, as I believe she has entered into a place where there is no longer any pain.

I think I'll go away this week next year.


  1. I'm so sorry for your losses. My father died in my teens followed by a string of other losses; making grief (and jokes about death) a common occurrence in our family. Doesn't make it any easier, but at least now I know in my head that the aching will subside, even if in my heart I don't "feel" like it. Sending good thoughts your way today!

  2. Good thoughts gratefully accepted!
    XO Stella
