6 Months of Grief Project: Day 61

8 Months of Grief

This is Day 61 of my #6MonthsOfGrief Project. To learn more about this practice, feel free to visit Day One, where I explain this project in more detail.

Tonight at midnight marks 8 months since my husband died before my eyes. These anniversaries hit hard, but I'm so exhausted from my new schedule that I think I will probably crawl straight into bed and sleep. I hope so. Sleep has been so elusive these days. My friend pointed out that my husband died in the summer and it's almost summer again. I'm astounded by this - the movement of days. Tonight is also the New Moon, a reminder that everything ends and everything begins again. We are all in the spiral. Nothing is permanent. Everything is in flux. This is both heartbreaking and at the same time a relief. This is life. This is death.


I am very aware that this project can bring up a lot around yours or other's grief and loss, I will always follow every post with some online grief support resources that have helped me. Please feel free to let me know of online support that you have found healing in your grief, as well:

Living with Grief Resources:

And remember, I am sharing this project on a variety of platforms, including my Instagram, Twitter, & Facebook feeds, as well as my Pinterest page on Grief. I use the hashtag #6MonthsOfGrief, so it can easily be found on any platform. Please share this project with anyone you think might need it.

Thank you, and see you tomorrow.
