Letters to Tuvia #120 What I’m Learning… (1-6-16)

 

Dear T,

I haven’t published a letter for a few days.  It’s not that I didn’t try but I keep hitting roadblocks.  I start one, rework it and then delete it.

Let me start this one is a poem of sorts that my friend Julia Hewitt sent me via Facebook and see it that inspires me…

 

 

I think this is where I am…    I don’t see myself as pushing through this grieving period to get to another side, but rather

to I’m trying to  absorb, adjust, accept and find a new way of seeing, a new way of defining myself.

I remember you a lot, I think about you a lot. I talk about you a lot.  I wake up every morning in tears but I am not suffering through tsunamis as often.

I’m feeling better as I get ready to pack for my first journey to Israel without you.

I don’t have more to say right now and I do want to get back to the digital piece that I would like to finish before I leave for Israel.

Miss You T,

Bonnie S.

  1. The poem says it beautifully, at least for me, Bonnie. It’s a good gift from your friend. I try not to compare with others too much. We are all different, our lives are/have been varied. The grief is still a part of my life, who I am now, and I still live my life, in joy and in sadness, for myself, and for others. Hugs again for sharing your own journey.
