#Letters to Tuvia #49: Lots of Activity (10-15-15)

Morning T,

Believe me, I wish I was still sleeping but I’ve lost patience and after I finish this update to you, I have a digital piece to work on and send to Tom for an important meeting he has today, sharing some of  our summer work with kids,  with one of our supporting organizations.  Yes, I am back at work and yes,  that feels good.

Lots of movement yesterday.  I was up and out of the house by 8,  headed to my Rockland life  It was a bit too cold for sandals but I’ve been trying  to keep summer alive.  Guess I have to move on to Fall as we reach October’s mid point right?   A first meeting with my future bereavement  leader- nope, that won’t work. She  was just too nosey,   Did  she really need to know how you died?  No way, right?  Sorry, but I shared way too much with her.  It won’t happen again, I promise.  I will keep looking.

Good thing that wasn’t my only activity.  I had a phone meet up with Tom, planning a bit for my digital piece that’s due in just a few hours.  Nothing like a deadline to keep the juices flowing.

As I finished our virtual meet up Dana met me at my apartment to freshen up the place and take time to celebrate her birthday.  It was good to come out of myself and celebrate her with a funky lunch and a mini birthday cake from the market at the bottom of the hill.  So glad to make her feel important!  She is!!!!

Therapy with Sandie.  That’s real therapy and I left after an hour feeling balanced, healthy really and a warm sun was back welcoming me as I headed back to  the apartment,  breathing  in the clean that Dana left me.

One more event- dinner with Hilda, Jane and Michael at one of their favorite eating spots in Nyack,  but first a visit to a jewelry shop for a new project. You know the two rings you wore for most of your adult life, the two I’ve been wearing since your last hospital visit, well soon they won’t look exactly the same as you remember.  Beverly and Shlomo the jewelers  are planning to transform them into one new ring and I will share it with you as soon as Shlomo calls me with the news.  I’m sooo excited.  Good idea, right?  I’m going to say, RIGHT for both of us.

A wonderful dinner with friends who are feeling your absence right along with me, T.

Yes, the day was full.  I’m trying hard to fill the emptiness your passing has left me.

Love you always,

Bonnie S.

  1. It feels right to me that you know what’s right for you and what’s not, like about the bereavement person. I hope that feels good to you, too, Bonnie. The ring idea sounds lovely, nice that you will have a special one to wear. Hugs for this day!
