I missed the check-in on April 13th and 16th, and am late for the April 20th check-in. My mother passed away on the 12th, rendering my progress this past week non-existent. I was able to go to her services and support my father for the past week, which was helpful in beginning to work through my grief.
As often happens, death brings a particular lens to life, making us realize what is important and what is not worth the time we spend on it. Although I have been thinking and jotting down snippets, I have nothing of substance to offer as solace or reflection, but I feel it will end up as something of worth.
I was away from the internet for the majority of the week, but hope to get back to comments and replies soon. Thank you all for being such supportive friends.
