Another Day

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Another day is almost over, 4 months and a day, and the house still seems so empty. Even with the TV on there is a void, a place that can not be filled. There is an emptiness of which I am always aware. People tell me that it doesn't go away. It lessens but never goes away.
I called about a grief support group today. It is held at a local nursing facility and is free. There is no more room; so, I won't be going to that one. Maybe I will find another.
I walked today and thought that being outside, in the sunshine, and getting exercise would help my sadness. It didn't and now I have to write a condolence to yet another person who has lost a loved one. That is 8 in 4 months, Too many and makes it difficult to slog throwuh my grief.
Oh, I walked briskly for 30 minutes. I am thankful that it was warm enough and sunny today so that I was comfortable walking.
Again, Ed, I pray, "May the Lord watch between you and me while we are absent , one from the other. Genesis 31:49

    Thank you for the beautiful orchid!! Sometimes hospitals have support groups. I don't know how old you are, but senior groups and agencies have them also I think. Maybe your Dr. could give you some suggestions. I'm glad you got out for a walk today. emoticon
