I am realizing that I am coming to terms with my feelings. The grief is still there but it is not all consuming like it was last week. I guess it is true that in fully feeling this that I am starting to see some relief. I'm a far cry from great but I'm not emotionally floundering either.
A random story..... the other day someone told me that due to global warming, in a few years there will be no more coffee. My response? Well, I guess that gives me a couple of years to figure out my issues and find a new coping mechanism :)
