Grief is a process, not a state.
Anne Grant

Grief is like a moving river, so that's what I mean by it's always changing. It's a strange thing to say because I'm at heart an optimistic person, but I would say in some ways it just gets worse. It's just that the more time that passes, the more you miss someone.
Michelle Williams 

It's been one year.

I'm dealing with things better, but it's always right under the surface.

There are so many big things that have happened this year that I would have called and told her.  Those days are really hard.

We just really miss her.


  1. I cannot tell you that it gets better. I think with time you learn how to deal with the emotions that take over at times. I was 8 years old when my beloved Lelo passed away. Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of his passing. There are times when all I want to do is talk to him and hear the joy in his voice but I simply cannot. It still hurts but it now bearable. When I visit home, I go and sit with him and catch him up on my life.

    You were blessed to have Nan in your life and it is okay to never feel like you can fully move on. She was a huge part of your life and will always be. Blessing sent your way.

  2. Thanks Veronica. I hope that it will dull enough to to reminisce soon. It seems like I have tried not to think of her because it hurts, but I do want to think about her and talk about her because she was an amazing mother, mother in law and Nan. I certainly don't want the kids to ever forget her.


I always love hearing from you!
