I know you know this but...

Even gentle grief is still grief. There are tears to be cried and bittersweet memories to be stored away. Sort of like fall, when we pack things away and wrap ourselves up against the change in the air.

The best way to hold yourself is to let yourself go. Go to your husband and your friends. Small children can be very soothing too.

I know you like to garden -- can you plant a therapy memory garden? It will give you something to focus on and to tend, as you grieve. Choose the flowers and plants carefully, to remind you of the different parts of your therapy experience: something with thorns, something soft and beautiful, something strong and something that reblooms again and again.

Throw a few daisies in too, if you like. We are hearty and make good filler. :)

My turn to hold you in my heart tonight. I hope it helps.
