Working on getting my hijacked thoughts back on track


Thursday, February 20, 2014

Isn't is interesting how your thoughts and head act after you have been in a habit for so long. I keep going to clean Guinie's litter boxes and of course they are not there. My DH said he would put them back just so that I could go though the process every morning.....LOL. Each day does get easier though and I have many things to occupy my brain, so that is good. I am packing for our Copper Canyon trip as well as getting things ready to drive to Pennsylvania right after that trip. I need to finish a couple of paintings that my step-son and daughter-in-law want that I painted down here....and will take many other things that will fit in the car that we want to give them. So it's really good to be distracted from my kitty grief. I am a positive person overall and have been through so much in my life that I know the process and have faith, which helps as well. Back 12 years ago I lost my only brother in a diving accident in Peru(where he lived), then my only nephew committed suicide, and then my father passed....all within 3 years. And then we thought that my brother had a daughter with the Peruvian woman he lived with and I arranged for them to come to the states when my father was sick so he could meet his only "grandchild" before he passed. but when I looked at this child, I knew it wasn't my brother's child and did the DNA testing so that my mother and father would know for sure. And of course it turned out that she wasn't my brothers child............so yep we all go through loss and pain and it's part of life. That is why it is so important to continue to focus on other things and get your mind "hijacked" back to the "now and the future"
Again I thank you all..........the outpouring from sparks was incredible.
I hope you all are doing well.
Cheers
Sallie

    Grief has a way of working through us. It is different with each person. So hard to lose family and our little furries are also family. Hubby has said to me many times he knew when I was grieving for my father even when I was not aware. He remarked that often when I was sleeping tears were running and he knew why.

    Oh that is so sad :( You will miss that warm furry cuddling purring friend for a long while, but life will eventually get in the way. That trip is coming at a most opportune time for sure..

    Awwwww, ((((HUGS)))) Grief is a process, and like anything else, takes time. But you're doing a wonderful job. It isn't easy.

HUGS and take it a day-at-a-time.
