I can make it from here!

I can make it from here!

You had to go, it was not your choice!  It was certainly not mine ! It was your time, a window of time!

I wish I had one more moment, one more day, one more chance to look out a window and watch you walk to the car, or watch you come back in the house!

I did not want to see you leave. I did not want to say goodbye!

Let's talk about grief! It hurts! A whole lot.

It makes you search your self for personal blame! Was it my fault or neglect?

When all is said and done. When all the flowers fade and all the people have left!

It is not your neglect, it is what happens on the blind side!

Yet, grief will not numb or eclipse my present or future!  "The reality is that you will grieve forever.  You will not 'get over' the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it.  You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered.  You will be whole again but, you will never be the same.  Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to."  (Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and John Kessler)

I can make it from here!

Grief! Powerful!

I can make it from here!
