Grief over the holidays 1

Sunday, November 20, 2011

I went to a retreat on dealing with grief over the holidays. Since I lost my wonderful Mother I have felt the touch of her love in many things and many times in my daily life now.
I am going to blog on what I learned .

Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a loss of faith. It is the price of love.

    What a simple, yet thought provoking sentiment to pass along, so others can benefit from another bit of "Mom Wisdom."
You are gracious to share such healing words, when we all need them sometime in our lives. You made my day!

    Thank you for sharing an inspiring note. I find my mom speaking to me in things that I do nearly every day. I know that the times we spent together were worth every tear. emoticon

    So very true--It would be sadder if there were no tears--tears honor a loved ones passing.

Hugs, Mary

Here I am having walked enough for today..
I am starting to realize I feel so much better when I take that walk.
I am resolved to get to the walking group at Maidu.
But it will have to be next week because i have to do the 8:45 shift
so I cannot go home until I walk

    I guess you found your motivation for putting the feet to the road.
Have not found my personal inspiration for getting out and moving it in any organized fashion. This week has been a whilwind, but hoping that upcoming week will find me with more energy to get going. Enjoy. . . is that the 9 a.m. walkers at Maidu?

Do not know how to spell in Italian but it means it is a so-so kind of day
I normally walk with a friend but she seems to be not feeling well today.
So I am off with another friend but just later today..
I have been sending off way to many Sympathy cards..
I am going to get some Card stock and start printing up my own..
at 5 to 6 dollars a piece and with as many as I have had to send lately.
I just do not know one little chink after another and then I feel so " heavy".
It goes away because I just go ahead and feel it as it happens.
I think it is healthier for allowing myself to feel.
So take time to take care of yourselves.

    Sorry for your losses. Try cards at the dollar store and trader joes. Trader joes is my favorite.

    The path is long and lonely without you. 3 miles YOU ROCK
If you are walking and smiling you are doing the right thing.

I got a chance to walk twice this weekend but only short one mile and one and a half mile walks.. I was feeling very tired and it took all I could to do what I normally do easily.
I still have a sore throat but I slept most of yesterday and all night and maybe I have shaken off what ever it was that I had... I got my flu shot last week and I thought that would free me from the bug... but ... it looks like it got me anyway...
I am changing my schedule and will be getting used to new activities..
but I am not allowing any time to do housework.. I am so tired I start out fixing the bed and end up taking a nap... I am still on plateau but my waist is smaller and I can button all the slacks I got the summer of the wedding...But I want the 36 inch waist that I also had.. It is musher now but only goes to 36 and a half or 37. I am not going to measure till next Monday.. I want to step up my walks to 45 minutes every day and walk a little faster.
I was doing more last year ... I was driven.. I woke up and forsed myself to walk.
But I had a radio that I could listen to.... I just do not like to walk to music.
I want something that plays talk CD's and talk and news radio..
What is wrong with me? I need a player that will play the folk music I prefer to hear.
And a radio that plays talk radio programs.
I also need a watch.. You just cannot be timing things with your phone at church services...

    My phone tunes in the radio but everytime a car comes down the street it loses the station, then after it passes the station comes back in.
