Love Transcends Dimensions

Gus & Sasha at 6 months old - June 2010
Some days are better than others, when you're grieving the loss of a loved one. Today is one of the bad ones.
I lost my fiance, Gus, suddenly and traumatically about 6 months ago. I've learned how to cope and get through day by day, but I never for one minute forget. Some days, the fog covering my mind and heart is so thick, I feel like concrete weights are holding down the corners of my mouth when I try to smile (not to mention my eyelids). It's like pushing through mud - exhausting!
I tried to write something fun and light today, but I can't break through the heaviness. You can only ignore or push emotions away for so long, until they gain momentum and steamroll over you.
That's how grief is, and everybody is grieving some sort of loss in their lives.
Since we are ALL experiencing stress and discomfort at some level, let's practice a little compassion for one another. Love and compassion can move mountains.
