On The Road

The photo above are chairs in my Dad’s front yard. We would sit for hours talking when I would visit.

I will be away a few days. I have to travel to my Dad’s home to close out his estate. It will be an emotional few days. I need to walk through him home one more time. Kind of like walking down memory lane I suppose. It seems to be a part of the grieving process I need to go through. Alone.

I know others have lost loved ones and we all handle it differently. And I know males and females also handle it in their own way. And that is ok. It is OUR grief. No timelines. No rules. The important part is that we grieve. It is not going away, we must deal with our emotions. Easy to say, difficult to do. No matter how many loved ones you lose it is always heart breaking.

What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, right? I will be back soon and will catch up on posting. Here are a few questions I wondered about.

  • Have you lost family members?

    • Yes
    • No
  • Did others try to tell you how to handle your grief?

    • Yes
    • No
  • Were you able to find your own pathway to healing?

    • Yes
    • No
  • Are you now able to help others who are grieving?

    • Yes
    • No

What do you think?

  1. My dad died a few minutes before Easter morning 6 years ago. I had a hard time for awhile, but then I started to find peace. My dad actually showed us how to die without fear. Once I bought a box of cornflakes because my dad ate them every morning and I had to smile while I was eating it. I try to smile when I think of him. He would not want me to cry. Then 3 months later my husband died from a motorcycle wreck. Now, that took me longer, but now I found peace about it. Everybody does have a grieving period. It is important you do that, but remember we are not guaranteed tomorrow, so enjoy today
