Friday night

Today after work, I drove down to the cemetery and sat and talked for a while. It’s hard to keep a conversation going when only one side can contribute, so it was a long way away from a Friday Night Date. But the plot of land we chose is nicely shaded in the afternoon, and it felt good just to sit there.

I know Ailish is gone. I know she could not hear anything I said to her. But I am still glad I went and talked.

“And most importantly, I’ve learned that there is something down deep within all of us ready to help us survive the things we think we can’t survive.”
This is from a lovely book called Tear Soup by Pat Schwiebert and Chuck DeKlyen on the premise that, “What’s true about soup making is also true about grieving.”
I’m glad that you went and talked too, Chris.

You needed to talk to Ailish. You did.

Good for you. :)

Who knows? Maybe she heard you. Maybe not. Doesn’t change the fact that it was a good thing for you to do, for you.
