Getting rid of a stain

Hello to my amazing blog friends.  I chose to delete the last post.  It felt like a stain - a stain I didn't want to see any more.  All of you who commented so lovingly, and honestly, and compassionately, I am forever grateful.  All of you truly helped me continue along my healing journey and grief process.

I still hurt but it is very manageable.  :-).  Loss is suppose to hurt and getting over a loss takes time and I am on my way.  Still, I felt the post itself was a stain - and I take that as a good sign of progress.

I spent the afternoon with my Mom today - brought her home made chicken soup and also a roasted chicken dinner for tonight with sweet potato, roasted carrots, turnip casserole and cranberry sauce - all of her favorites.  She is doing well - her new normal is less than before she went in to the hospital.  She tires quickly, moves a lot slower and requires assistance with daily tasks - but all in all?  She is doing fine.  I say this with the deepest gratitude and joy. Praise be...

Skipp and I are still savoring and enjoying our time together.  We laugh heartily every day, many times.  Glorious.  :-)

And so once again, I say "thank you" to all of you, for all my blessings and for being able to feel what I have a right to feel.  I feel love, sadness, joy, fear, blessed, doubt, passion, understood, misunderstood, and the full spectrum of emotions that life demands.

Still -it was time to get rid of the stain from my blog. and maybe in doing so it wiped some of the same from my heart.
