Letters to Tuvia #27: September 21, 2015 # SOL15

Hi T,

Family’s all here and tucked in for, let’s hope, a good night’s sleep but Adi is sure they will be up by 3 . I actually looked forward to our cereal in the darkness here and in Israel.  Remember?  Jet Lag could be  Very romantic.

Adi and the kids were treated with to VIP welcome at Mia’s school and then Mihael’s.  It’s been a hard adjustment to life in Israel.  I know, you are reminding me that you believe they will bounce back to the U.S.  Let’s give them a chance to make it work, okay?

As for my day, it was new normal. Even in the peace and quiet of  my apartment and enveloped in my new bed set. I still can’t sleep much.  My mind is awake and alive.

I was up at 6 to make the call for both of us, to get the news from Ami that their plane had arrived and family was well.  Yes, the plane was a bit late but down and okay.  I missed the actual experience.  Yes, if you were here we would have been there to pick up our precious cargo and personally deposit them home.  Ami took care of that.

It was a tough day on so little sleep, but good things were happening  too…  Jon offered me a productive, fun ukulele lesson,  I had a great therapy session with lots of deep breathing, then  dinner out in Nyack with Joy and finally, back home in pjs for a Monday night of new tv shows.

And we are getting closer to our Yom Kippur Anniversary and then your birthday, so lots of tears coming my love,

Bonnie S.

  1. Let the tears come as they will- they will be healing, and many times you will be smiling at memories through the tears. These letters are so meaningful. Of course they are so specific to you, yet they are universal to all who have gone through grief. Each time we hear someone’s story and think of our own brings more comfort and healing. A new normal will come, and yet this is one of the deepest experiences in life and will always be such a part of who you are.
