The days are definitely getting shorter! When I walk in the morning it is very dark and it used to be light and beautiful. It makes me a little melancholy, another first without Dennis. I had the first summer, the first anniversary, his birthday, going back to Grand Lake, the car show and the first OU sooner football game. I feel like I have accomplished a lot in 5 months. Now, I'm headed into first fall, first Halloween, first Thanksgiving and first Christmas, UGH! I'm reading a book called "Grieving and the Holidays", and it has been very helpful. It says to take it slow and don't do anything you don't want to do. I did get my fall decorations out today and it wasn't as painful as I thought it would be. I just really don't want summer to end. I can be outside and not stuck inside but I know I will get through it with God's help. On an up note we had an Alince Cleo reunion and I got to see three of my classmates!
