changes

So it's been some time since my last update.

here's a pic of me before I ran the 5k on May 7th:
I ran the 1st mile, easy. 2nd and 3rd were hardest things I've ever done and my bladder wasn't having it so I walked and ran but I did it. And I'll run another one later this year when it gets cooler.

Here's a pic of me at my new gig:
No, I didn't join the army. But I am working with service members. As a result, I'm closing my psychotherapy practice as of 10.1.11. I can't get into the details of what I'm doing specifically but contact me if you want to know more..I'll just say that it feels really good to be a part of something way bigger than myself right now.

I'm still knitting and crocheting but much slower. Life still hurts, grief still hurts but in between, I get little reminders that my Dad is still very much here with me.

Wendy, remember, grief is a process, not an event. Be patient with yourself and take care of you. The death of a parent changes your life forever, but you are exactly right..your dad may not be here physically, but he will live on in spirit through your memories.

Doing something "way bigger" than yourself means you are developing a new self-identity, so kudos to you for being more open to life's challenges. I love that you are working with service members and can't hardly wait to hear more of the specifics!!!

Love and blessings to you, friend!
