and so there it is.

It’s all over. It was easier this time, physically at least. I’m mostly keeping it together, but I’ve had my moments

I chopped all my hair off, donated 11 inches of it to others who need it much more than I do. I bought a plane ticket with Firefly’s blessing, to get out of town for a few days and meet up with some women I’ve grown close to through these interwebs in the big city.

And now this month I want to focus on what I’m thankful for every day. Today I’m thankful for my wife. For having someone who understands and gives me space when I need it, and hugs without me asking because she knows that’s what I need right now, too. For not questioning when I asked her about going on this trip. For not making me feel like an idiot when I sat in the car sobbing to her this weekend and understanding my frustration. For being my best friend.

    I am so sorry. I wish I could say or do more. I am happy that you have the love and support you need right now and that you are being kind to yourself. Lots of love headed your way.

    I’m so glad you have your wife to help you through this. Its a horrible, sucky thing to go through. Be gentle with yourself. Everyone’s grief is different, so listen to your heart and do what you need to do to get through.

    Sending hugs and love.
