6 Months of Grief Project: Day 92

Work Work Work

This is Day 92 of my #6MonthsOfGrief Project. To learn more about this practice, feel free to visit Day One, where I explain this project in more detail.

And just like that, another anniversary passes. The days and weeks and months go by in a flash. I clickety clack at my new job - scroll, scroll, click, click. I sit in traffic twice a day. I pack my lunch. Time continues to steal my husband away from me. It takes the fresh feelings and memories and begins to bury them in the dirt. I use my whole heart and body to remember what it felt like to rest my head on his enormous chest. I struggle to feel how soft his lips always were when we kissed. I yearn to remember the feeling of his soft beard on my face.

It gets harder and harder to remember and that breaks my heart.

And yet time is healing me too. I find new strengths and powers I did not know I had.

Time is both a thief and a salve. Time is a robber and a healer - just like my husband was.


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.
