How Long Should I Grieve? (from Memory Bears by Bonnie. Follow Link below)
How long should you grieve is complicated if you read ten different opinions in ten different books. It is complicated if you listen to well-meaning family and friends.
The answer to the question of how long one should grieve is as numerous as there are hearts that are broken by personal loss.
Grief, like love, will last your lifetime. It will be intense in the beginning, then as each day turns into weeks, then months, your grief will find a place in your life. As long as you live, you will remember your loved one…and you will grieve. (Bonnie)
—As I see it, I need not be ashamed of loving Ron so much that the grief doesn’t ever stop. I am not weak because I still cry. I am not a failure because I still love. And neither are you… Brenda J Wood

I just got off the phone with friend of mine near Calgary. She said that since early this morning it has been snowing. It’s now nearly waist high and is still falling.
The temperature is dropping way below zero and the north wind is increasing to near gale force. Her husband just stares through kitchen window. She says that if it gets much worse, she may have to let him in.
I am shocked and surprised and grateful to find that I’ve just been awarded the Inscribe Barnabas Fellowship. Words fail me!
Just when you think your life is made up of sheer survival, is boring and mundane, you find yourself designing and sewing a Perry the Platypus costume for a seven year old!
I hadn’t even heard of Perry. I certainly didn’t know what Perry looked like. Never mind say the parents. You can Google him. This is not much comfort. I can Google me too.
If you are in the same mess, watch for a Perry costume appearing somewhere under my googled name. Wow! What a credit to have on my resume!
Doesn’t God have the best ideas for shaking you out of your sad self, your staid comfort zone? You gotta love his sense of humour.
