I spent a fun afternoon wading up the creek from our house, the creek which is normally dry was about ankle to knee deep. Of course, it started raining while I was quite a way up in the woods, but it was 75 degrees and the rain wasn't cold, neither was the creek.
Good morning. Awoke early and sent email to a nice woman I met in Cali, saying (bottom line), “… I’m not ready for a relationship with a woman other than a friendship.” It had seemed like a relationship would be nice, but four months after my wife’s passing is too soon. I’m still in love.
Good Morning, I'm lucky enough never to have lost a spouse, but I know the healing process of grief takes different paces for everyone. Be easy on yourself.
I'm turning 52 today, and 26 years ago yesterday I lost one of the most important people in my life. My grandmother who had lived with us, two houses, same acre. So today I realize I've lived without her exactly half my life. Bittersweet but so lucky to have had people who are worth missing the rest of your life.

so lucky to have had people who are worth missing the rest of your life.
Indeed, a nice thought to start the day.
Yes. It is.
Echo made me think. I would have said it was nowhere near that long since I lost my grandmother, but in fact it was 1991--24 years ago. Not quite half my life, but getting there. Given what long generations we had, I was lucky to have had her until I was 28.
