I put my daughter in daycare part time and she's adjusting well. I've been going out with friends and keeping busy trying to keep my mind occupied. I still have bad days but most days are okay. The holidays are going to be tough but I'll get through them. I like my new house and I'm not dreading the future so much anymore. I haven't been on the grief forums at all because I'm trying to focus on life and not death now. My heart couldn't take writing about my husband everyday anymore. I love him and miss him but I've accepted that he's gone forever. That's about it. I hope everyone is doing well.
Thank goodness you have now come through the worst of it.

That shift is so very healthy, and I am so glad you were able to transition to it.

Dear MLC, I've been thinking about you, dear, and wondering how you have been doing. So glad you and your baby girl are doing okay. Many hugs to you both.

I am so glad you are doing better, Cookies. It sounds like you have established a firm footing for dealing with the difficult times ahead. Yes, the Holidays will bring challenges. But you can make it through. Keep remembering that things can be better. Sometimes I think of the widows I know who have positive, meaningful, enjoyable lives, despite their losses. We can do that too. Keep faith, and reach out for support when you need it. Wishing you all the best.
