I am exhausted and emotionally drained tonight and don't have the mental energy or room for a full post, but I just wanted to thank everyone for your very heartfelt and loving responses to yesterday's post. The responses I got yesterday surprised me in their intensity and brought me great comfort. It's funny to me when people remark at how private these moments seem-- I guess I feel like I threw the privacy out the window the day I first started writing about my grief. It all just runs together now for me--none of it seems more or less personal. It's all terribly personal. Some memories and reflections, like yesterday's, are decidedly more painful than others, but sharing them always, always helps. And to anyone who ever feels like an intruder, please don't. I've invited you in for a reason and am glad to have you here, whether I know you or not.
Thank you all again. Hopefully I will be in a writing state of mind tomorrow. Missing my girl so very much tonight.
