Thank you, everyone, for being so thoughtful and kind regarding my husband’s passing. I appreciated all of the warm and wonderful words you took time to share.
It is a week today since Charles left for heaven. I am doing pretty well, though I have the signs of grief people have told me about. The other day I had three stops to make on the same road in our little town. I got all the way to the end of the street before realizing that I had missed each of the three shops and had to backtrack.
The day before that I missed my exit on the freeway and had to double back. And each night as I sit at my computer typing away I look up and suddenly it’s midnight or later. I used to go to bed at 10:00.
My mind is mush . . . but I’m told that’s to be expected when one faces a loss of such proportion. But even in the midst of this confusion and uncertainty I feel the love of God and the grace notes he sends my way each day.
I’m taking it easy, avoiding rushing, eating well, and taking long walks with dear friends. Charles is safe with God in heaven and I’m safe with God here on earth and someday we’ll all be in an endless fellowship on the other side.
Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
~ Psalm 37:4
