The past few days

Its been a tough weekend....
my heart hurts.
I find myself seeing my boys and just tearing up....
oh the healing~ it needs to come and embrace all mankind.

“No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear. I am not afraid, but the sensation is like being afraid. The same fluttering in the stomach, the same restlessness, the yawning. I keep on swallowing. At other times it feels like being mildly drunk, or concussed. There is a sort of invisible blanket between the world and me. I find it hard to take in what anyone says. Or perhaps, hard to want to take it in. It is so uninteresting. Yet I want the others to be about me. I dread the moments when the house is empty. If only they would talk to one another and not to me.” ~ C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed


  1. Beautiful words Tif...I hope it all gets easier. I too am hugging my boys close...I'm sending hugs to you too...xx

  2. I did not know that quote from CS Lewis. Love him.
    Hugs to you and everyone as we process this as a culture...
