I didn't think I would survive but here I am! Sometimes the hurt is so unbearable it seems suffocating, but I always pull through. I am taking a Griefshare class and we learned that if we need to cry then cry, don't hold it in and you know, it works. It seems after I have a good cry I feel better. I thought I would be farther along than I am at 6 months but in my class I have learned that everyone goes through grief at their own pace, and it's true. It’s the little things that seem to get me. Watching "The Office" or "World's Dumbest" and not having Dennis there to laugh with me. I need his advice and wisdom on family matters and he is not there. I always want to talk politics or religion with him because he always had good insight. He kept me grounded, and now sometimes I feel so unbalanced or unsteady.
This is the time when I have to take hold of the anchor that holds me steady. God will never leave me or forsake me and I have to hold on to the promises He made. He is working all things for my good and I have to trust in Him. Like the song says "When I cannot see it, God I still believe it, You are working all things for my good.' Please keep Whitney and I in your prayers as we continue on in this journey. Much Love, Cheri
