Another Day

October 30th, 2017 at 02:48 pm

Yesterday's spending was $28 for gas and $2 for Halloween cards. Today I'll stick two tens in the cards and mail them to my Florida grandchildren. Unfortunately, they'll be late, but hopefully, still appreciated.

Last night I picked up C's sister at the train station. I will go over there today, but now that she has two people caring for her, in addition to DIL, I will probably make it short. I spent most of yesterday there.

I made spaghetti sauce last night, and I will take it over today, along with the pasta.

I am assuming I will pick up the boys today, though DIL has not said yet. She may be off work and planning to do it herself.

I appreciate all the support that is expressed here. You are all so kind. I hope everyone understands I am writing about this just because it is my world right now; I'm not looking for kudos. In fact, I feel I am doing only what anyone would do for a friend, and my DIL and C's sisters and friends are the real heroines in this story!

    I love the saying "It takes a village." Sometimes we are only the tinder gathereres that keep the fire going, but that it the fire that warms everyone and all kindnesses count toward the bigger picture of lifting people in need and loving them. I run a bereavement group for people who have lost children (it totally sucks and isn't a very fun thing to do, but is totally necessary). And it is interesting that even the small helpers are always appreciated (driving kids to places and having warm meals so things are "normal" for them is So So So important). Keep it up! x L

    We who were so lost in grief never realized how much care and 'normal' activities were generously, silently, picked up by others until a year after the funeral. I know I never managed to thank all, I was so overwhelmed.

    It's good for everyone to see a little bit into other people's lives. We can all learn from each other. Supporting the supporters is support!

    Having read your blog for so long I feel like we are friends and I don't think anyone would think you write about what you do for kudos. You write what you are living. The nice thing about the SA group is we care about each other. Hang in there!
