We've done several things to get through this ....We had a little family memorial last 4th of July... at my daughter's in Wi. Our whole family was there.....one of Tim's favorite places was at the lake...fishing.I started a memory garden with the bird bath with a statue of a little boy that Joe bought me. Joe got a paver with his name on it for our Grotto at Church. We had several Masses for him. I had a book made of my blog and I can look back and reread all of the comments from bloggers at that time. Comments, cards, letters, phone calls, visits...all helped ease the pain.
I just finished reading a little book written by my favorite author, Gladys Taber. She had a lifelong friend who died and Gladys wrote this book as she was grieving. This is a quote from the book...
When we dwell in the house of sorrow, we have a long lease on it which cannot be canceled. But eventually another door does open, into a place of quietude and acceptance. Her book "Another Path" is the key to that door.
