I Love My Tribe

I spent most of my day embraced by love.  I am happy for the fact that I have such a wonderful tribe of people who care about me. I have family members who check in to see if I am OK. (I am)  I have friends who extend an ear if/when I need to talk. It matters not, if I need to cry, laugh, or reminisce. I have friends who gingerly approach my feelings about death and the afterlife. (I have no problems discussing this as long as no one tries to trash my views.)  I have had people reach out to me that I haven’t been in touch with for awhile. It makes me feel less alone with my grief. I am not in any way trying to be heroic. I am feeling all my feelings which may change from hour to hour. 

I love my tribe. My afternoon ended with more bad news on another front.  I wondered if I should just wave a white flag and crawl under my covers to hide from the world. This is truly one of the very rare occasions that I wish I drank alcohol. Getting drunk sounds like a good idea tight now. But , I know it solves no problems. 

G-d, grant me the strength to keep moving one foot in front of the other until this grief is lessoned.

  1. We all have days when the world just seems too much. I am sorry so much has arrived on your doorstep at the same time. I am glad you gave such a strong support system. It does not wear off like alcohol would. Hang in there my friend.

  2. Sorry Lauren, for another issue at this time of grieving. I hope the most recent is something that can be resolved with less trauma. Thinking of you and praying for relief and peace.
