Welcome Widows and anybody else out there mourning the loss of a loved one.
Today is the first day of September 2009. Time to usher in a new month and new season--autumn leaves changing colors, sounds of children's chatter and laughter as they dash off to catch school busses--time to embrace change, time to experience what I lovingly refer to as mourning joy.
Yes, it is sad to see summer end...and, it's joyful, too.
Mourning Advice: Live the new season.
Feel the crinkle in your nose as you breathe in crisp morning air;
Dont' be shy. Go ahead. Wave and smile at your neighbor's daughter or son darting out her or his door.
Fill your senses.
After that, do what I do. Open that joy-nal, and write something.
I dare you.
I know it's not easy living life without your loved one by your side, but I'm here to tell you, we're not alone.
You can and you will get through.
If I can do it, so can you.
Have a joy-filled day, Everyone.
