I need to remember this as I begin my son's last year at home. In a little over a year, we'll be saying good bye as he heads off to college. Making everyday special and every moment count will take my mind off of counting down the days.
This really made me pause and reevaluate my mindset as a Senior and as a person in general. I've been so set on leaving that I need to appreciate the smaller aspect that I'm going to miss once I'm actually gone. So thank you.
During the grief process, you may be thrust instantly and without warning, into misery as the emotional wave swells and descends. Remind yourself that you have had these feelings before and that eventually it passes.
