Grief Relief

Suzanne Uncategorized

I promise that this will be my last posting on grieving over my pup…but I think I’ve discovered that I am very inexperienced with grief.

Though I have to say I have been so touched by the e-mails and cards and comments. It’s amazing how much it helps! Makes me realize that reaching out to someone who is grieving is very important. Kindness is downright therapeutic.

Yesterday was a hard day. It was the first “normal” day after Azure’s passing. The house was quiet. My eldest daughter had been visiting and left for home.

In some ways, it might have been the toughest day. Coming home to an empty house, for example. Ouch ouch ouch.

Actually, I was able to tell two friends about Azure without tearing up, which I considered a step forward.

Last night, I woke up and my thoughts bounced back to Azure and I felt that crest of sadness again.

So here is my question to those of you who have worked through grief of any kind:

Am I dwelling? Or processing?

Any insights to enlighten me?
