The first lesson of grief

A friend died. She was past 100. She was a friend, but not a close friend. I still felt sad.

As I thought about my friend’s death, I remembered my mother’s death.

In her book She Matters: A Life in Friendships, Susanna Sonnenberg writes that the first real lesson about grief is “its disorganizing confusions, its inescapable solitude.”

I remember those confusions and that feeling of solitude. Since I have experienced that grief myself, I understand when others are grieving and I can try to comfort them.

  37. The following time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I know it was my choice to read, however I actually thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could possibly repair should you werent too busy looking for attention.

  38. Yet another issue is that video gaming became one of the all-time most important forms of fun for people of various age groups. Kids play video games, and also adults do, too. The particular XBox 360 is amongst the favorite gaming systems for individuals that love to have hundreds of activities available to them, along with who like to learn live with other people all over the world. Many thanks for sharing your thinking.

  39. I believe that avoiding processed foods may be the first step so that you can lose weight. They can taste good, but prepared foods have got very little vitamins and minerals, making you take more just to have enough energy to get through the day. In case you are constantly having these foods, transitioning to whole grain products and other complex carbohydrates will help you to have more energy while ingesting less. Great blog post.

  40. I have realized some important matters through your blog post. One other point I would like to talk about is that there are several games in the marketplace designed mainly for toddler age youngsters. They consist of pattern recognition, colors, pets, and models. These commonly focus on familiarization as an alternative to memorization. This keeps a child occupied without having the experience like they are learning. Thanks

  41. I’ve learned a number of important things as a result of your post. I would also like to express that there might be situation that you will obtain a loan and never need a cosigner such as a Federal government Student Aid Loan. When you are getting that loan through a common financier then you need to be prepared to have a co-signer ready to assist you. The lenders will base their own decision using a few aspects but the most significant will be your credit history. There are some loan merchants that will also look at your job history and decide based on that but in almost all cases it will be based on on your report.

  53. I believe that avoiding ready-made foods is a first step to help lose weight. They may taste great, but prepared foods contain very little vitamins and minerals, making you consume more in order to have enough power to get over the day. If you are constantly ingesting these foods, moving over to grain and other complex carbohydrates will let you have more vitality while ingesting less. Interesting blog post.
