Four Months

Dar
road-791160_640I can't believe it will be 4 months on August 2nd since Myron's death. Sometimes it seems like only yesterday, other times it seems much longer because he was in the nursing home for a time. I can't get use to the loneliness and emptiness of the house.

I have joined the local Jewish Community and go for water aerobics and senior yoga.  It forces me along with meeting friends for lunch to get moving most days.  There were too  many days I didn't want to leave the house or get dressed  so I forced  myself to commit to doing things.

Still have some days when I don't want to get dressed or leave the house but much fewer.  Also, the various Grief Groups I attend help.  I keep telling myself that I can get through this but the loss sometimes seem so overwhelming and I have too much time to think.  I have a lot of things I should be doing, but I don't have the energy to do them.

I am very thankful that I have good friends who push me to get out of the house and meet with them. I pray every day for the strength to travel down this lonely road.
