It was exhausting then…and it’s exhausting now.
The week that was, four years ago seems to have weighed-in heavily this year. I don’t know why. I’ve read about delayed sadness, after the loss of a loved one. Maybe that’s how I explain this sensation of the past five or six days.
I do feel the heavy foot of sorrow lifting off my chest and for that I am thankful. It’s not something a person can carry around with them for a long period of time, without some long-lasting damage.
I’ve heard about ‘late-effect’ complications from cancer treatment, but this ‘late-effect’ grief is a new one on me.
Thank you for all your ‘lifting’ this week. Couldn’t have gotten through this without you.
