Around the Table

Hi Alesia—just had to tell you that I read your post and I feel so much the same way! My mother died two years ago and my father died more than 20 years ago and sometimes, it’s still hard. At my son’s graduation last week, I felt such a pang when they asked the grandparents to stand up, and he didn’t have any. A friend of mine just lost her mother and my friend asked me when does it stop hurting. I could only tell her that it does ease, but there’s no time table and she just has to allow herself to feel whatever she needs to feel. In other words, as you said, it’s okay—all of it’s okay.

Thanks for sharing this.
