I was always afraid if I started to cry I would never stop. But the truth is that even though I cry a lot still, I do stop and go on. And I've learned that to give in to the tears, a little here and a little there, helps keep them put away when I really need them put away.

I think this kind of grief never completely goes away. But the act of grieving eventually is no longer daily. Things might trigger the grief and we will feel sad again. But if we've done the working through, we can move out of that sadness a little quicker each time.

Holidays are really hard. I've been struggling with Thanksgiving and all that it means as well. So hang in there.
